Utah Artists Feature the Art of Printmaking

A new Western Nevada College art exhibit will feature 25 of Utah's finest artists, using the art of printmaking to create diverse works. "Out of Print" will show in the Main Gallery, January 25-February 25. A public reception for the artists is Wednesday, Jan. 27, 4:30-5:30 p.m.

The scope of subjects in the show is expansive. The Western landscape, elements of the natural world, animal favorites, commonplace objects, the human figure, and the role of symbolism are investigated. The exhibit artists represent a breadth of artistic schools ranging from super-realism to the Mormon art and belief movement.

Many of the artists have been college and university faculty, and most have received awards and recognitions of significance. Their work has been featured in major galleries and museums.

The WNC Carson art galleries, located in the Bristlecone Building on the Carson City campus are open weekdays, 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. All exhibitions and related activities are free and open to the public.

"Out of Print" is part of the Nevada Arts Council's Nevada Touring initiative, sponsored by the National Endowment for the Arts. The initiative supports the work of artists and increases access to cultural events and experiences at the local level, particularly in communities that have typically been underserved. The Nevada Arts Council is a division of the Nevada Department of Cultural Affairs.
