True Grit Exhibit Open to Public through July 6

Posted: May 31, 2018

Ruby, a 50-foot rattlesnake, is part of the True Grit exhibit in the Bristlecone Gallery at WNC.

The community still has time to see the True Grit art exhibit in Western Nevada College’s Bristlecone Gallery.

The exhibit is part of Carson City’s National Endowment for the Arts celebration, which included 30 days of programing based on the True Grit novel, and will be on display through July 6.

A focal point of the exhibit is a collection of art that individuals from around the state created from a canceled deck of playing cards from local casinos. True Grit, which is named after Charles Portis’ 1968 novel and twice made into a movie, also includes art by E Clampus Vitus, Deon Reynolds and WNC students. Ruby, the 50-foot rattlesnake from the Nevada Day Parade, is also part of the exhibit.

The gallery is open Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
