As fall advances and leaves and trees are changing to their radiant colors in Northern Nevada and the Tahoe Basin, the current art exhibits at Western Nevada College spectacularly reflect this time of the year.
Now showing in the Bristlecone Atrium Gallery on the Carson City campus is “Glorious Autumn” by photographer Marie Nygren of Fallon. WNC Art Galleries is also presenting from two other photographers in the Bristlecone Hallway Gallery: Dennis Doyle and Kristen Kabrin.
“Fall is a special time,” Nygren said. “As colors abound in prominent and obscure places, it makes for an outrageous artistic palette and a bounty of photographic opportunities.”
In “Glorious Autumn,” Nygren captures the full splendor of fall in her landscape photographs.
“My heart is full witnessing all of the beauty in nature and sharing what I see through the lens with you,” she said. “It is my honor to show my art at WNC.”
Doyle specializes in capturing the mood of a sunset, the serenity of a desert playa, the story of the tree and the power and movement of the beauty of water. His passion for the outdoors has taken him throughout the West, including national and state parks; deserts, mountain peaks and the Pacific Coast.
Earning a college degree didn’t alter what Kabrin loves most, taking photos of landscapes.
“In short, I like to be outdoors, shooting things that me happy and, in turn, I hope to bring a little happiness to others,” Kabrin said. “Black-and-white images make my heart sing. Landscape and nature photography feed my soul.”
The exhibits will be shown through Oct. 5. These artists will be included in the reception for the “Lockdown” exhibit from 5 to 6:30 p.m. on Oct. 5 in the Main Gallery.
WNC’s Art Galleries are located at 2201 W. College Parkway in the Bristlecone Building. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
