Seven artists are doing their part to inspire, excite and inform Western Nevada College Main Gallery visitors about the beauty of drawing.
Now showing in the Carson City campus gallery is the Nevada Art Council’s traveling exhibit, “Making A Mark.”
Dennis Angel, Las Vegas; Galen Brown, Carson City; Gig Depio, Las Vegas; Miya Hannan, Reno; Eunkang Koh, Reno; Dennis Parks, Tuscarora; and Sidne Teske, Tuscarora, contributed their drawings, stoneware and watercolors to the exhibit, which will be shown through Dec. 14.
Making an image using line is an art that reaches back 35,000 years. These contributing artists honor this ancient custom of communicating visual ideas using the means of lines with their drawings of sushi, clouds, gardens, oysters and more. Their intent is to show that every human is a mark maker and that the exhibition calls attention to the creative urge to leave behind a trace of ourselves.
“Making A Mark” is part of the Nevada Arts Council’s Nevada Touring Initiative Traveling Exhibition Program and is funded by the National Endowment for the Arts and the State of Nevada. It’s curated by Paul Baker Prindle.
