On Display Through March 22

‘Transitions’ Sculptures Exhibit in Main Gallery

Artist Andrea Henkels Heidinger presents “Transitions,” a sculpture and multimedia exhibition, at Western Nevada College’s Main Gallery. It shows Monday, Feb. 11, through Friday, March 22, at the Carson City campus.

Heidinger’s work explores the artistic possibilities of the waste she and her family create in everyday activities. This exploration has spanned 15 years, and she says the subject matter remains challenging and exciting.

“From the earth we generate materials for our everyday life, and here I explore fitting those materials back into landscape to inspire thought about humans and the environment,” she said.

Henkels Heidinger’s works on display at WNC are sometimes lit from behind or inside, alluminating the angles and vibrant colors of the piece.

Heidinger holds a Masters Degree in Fine Arts/Sculpture from the University of Idaho. She wrote the “Manifesto of a Post-consumer Artifactist Artist,” which she said still guides her art-marking processes to this day.

Her artwork has been shown nationally and internationally, including a showing at the Invitational Biennale Internazionale dell’Arte Contemporanea in Florence, Italy. More recently, Heidinger works in Utah, where she is teaching 3-D design.

A public reception is 5-6 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 19, in the Main Gallery located in the Bristlecone Building.
