A group of Western Nevada College art students is displaying their creativity and diversity of talent through a recently unveiled Capital City Arts Initiative exhibit.
“ART from WNC” showcases 11 students’ artwork, including drawing, photography, graphic design and watercolor painting through April 12 at the Brick, 108 E. Proctor St., in Carson City.
The exhibition presents poster designs by professor Jayna Conkey’s graphic communications students, including Neil Anderson, Christian Cooper, Jesus Fernandez Garcia, Robin Johnson, Michelle Keele, Suzanne Pipho, Stacia Woomer and Amanda Yau. Also featured are Steven Saylor’s student, Sharon Carter, who submitted a large watercolor landscape for the show; Bailee Barber, a student of Conkey’s, who has two series of photographs in the exhibition; and Tracy Mendibles’ pencil drawing, “Wild Rose,” is also being shown.
“CCAI is delighted to work with the college’s students and faculty to produce this exhibition. The students’ creativity is a strong asset in our community,” said Sharon Rosse, executive director for CCAI, a nonprofit visual arts organization.
The public can view the exhibit at no cost, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to noon and 1 to 4 p.m.
