More than 400 miles separate Northern and Southern Nevada, but the latest art exhibit at Western Nevada College brings the two distinct regions closer together.
An artistic collaboration between Northern and Southern Nevada artists produced Geographical Divides: Finding Common Ground, which will be shown in the Main Gallery on the Carson City campus through Feb. 12, 2018.
Former WNC art professor Sharon Tetly is among the 16 artists who participated in the collaboration. Each pairing produced two prints from their association, exploring the cultural and geographical similarities and differences in Nevada.
The print collaboration teams included Tetly of Carson City and Daryl DePry of Las Vegas, who combined to produce Open Range and Virginia City Tapestry, and Galen Brown of Carson City and Bobbie Ann Howell of Las Vegas. They paired to create the prints Tracks and Nevada. Some of Brown’s work has appeared in WNC’s Carson City and Fallon galleries, and he has previously served as an instructor at WNC.
The other collaboration teams are Lynn Schmidt of Reno and Maria Arango of Las Vegas with Urban Rural Interface and Terra Tribuo Terra Partis; Erik Beehn of Las Vegas and Nolan Preece of Reno with Here, There & Between and The Milkman; Keith Conley of Las Vegas and Sidne Teske of Tuscarora with Cryptid FPS and Nevada Walkabout; Anne M. Hoff of Las Vegas and Vicki LoSasso with Along a Thin Line and Synergistic Divisions; Jeanne Voltura of Las Vegas and Candace Nicol of Reno with Divided Values and Pleasure Garden., Juan D. Varela of Las Vegas and Ashlea Clark of Reno with Born to Be On Fire and Bridging the Gap.
The exhibit is part of the Nevada Touring Initiative-Traveling Exhibition Program.
The Main Gallery is located in the Bristlecone Building at 2201 W. College Parkway in Carson City. The gallery is open during school hours, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 9 p.m., and Saturdays, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
