Bilingual Show Exhibits in Atrium Gallery
"The Call of Memories", or "El Llamado de las Memorias," shows in the Atrium Gallery at Western Nevada College, Monday, Feb. 14 - Friday, March 25. The exhibit explores an observation made in author Barbara Kingsolver's book, "Animal Dreams:" "Memory is a complicated thing, a relative to truth, but not its twin."
An eloquent collection of poetry and prose in English and Spanish is complimented with photography to present a diverse and contemplative show. Laced through each literary piece are memories. They are broadly interpreted and presented in various forms ranging from assessments of emotional and spiritual journeys to accounts of life, from descriptions of people to recollections of experiences.
The literary work is that of Western's creative writing classes, the Lone Mountain Writers' group, and other northern Nevada writers. WNC's Latino Student Club has provided Spanish translations, and the photography is courtesy of the creative writing class.
This is the fourth exhibit of photographic and literary expression for the Lone Mountain Writers, and it has been dedicated to the late Bill Cowee, an acclaimed Nevada poet who extended his love poetry to the Western Nevada College community when he donated more than 1000 volumes of poetry to the WNC library in 2007.
The public is invited to meet the artists at a reception, Wednesday, Feb. 16, 5-6:30 p.m. in the WNC Carson City galleries. WNC Carson City art galleries are located in the Bristlecone Building. Hours: 8 a.m.-9 p.m. weekdays; 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday, with holiday closures. Information: 445-3000.
