WNC Art Galleries recently unveiled two exhibits in the Bristlecone Building Art Gallery at Western Nevada College.
The “Faculty and Staff Art Show” celebrates the many talents of WNC’s family. Showcased in the Main Gallery, you will find a wide array of arts and crafts made by WNC faculty and staff from all disciplines.
Inspired by the beauty of nature, more than 200 children from Northern Nevada have come together to create vibrant and colorful artworks for “Nature’s Symphony.” A collaboration between Arts for Children of Nevada and the WNC Art Gallery made this possible.
Faculty and staff contributing artists are Ashley Osborne, Troy Tingle, Rachel Stiff, Hal Starratt, Suzanne Pipho, Niki Gladys, Colleen Reynolds, Michelle Peltier, Jeff Erickson, Jackie Pias Carlin, Steven Saylor, Cherrice Dotson, Amy Ghilieri, Julie Kniffen, Janice Powell Shedd, Kim DesRoches, Timothy Mayo, Doug Barrett, Tom Drakulich, Cheryl Pawluk, Joseph Bell, Dowain Swain, Vincent Solis, Sierra Montana, Winnie Kortemeier and Jeanne L. Evatt.
In addition in the Main Gallery, there are mannequins on display from Carson City Arts and Culture Coalition, representing a variety of arts and culture present in the community.
Contributing to “Nature’s Symphony” are Children’s Museum of Northern Nevada, Alpine Learning Center in Markleeville, St. Teresa of Avila School in Carson City, Trinity Lutheran Preschool and Child Care in Gardnerville, Allie and Friends in Minden, WNC’s Child Development Center in Carson City, Brightening Days in Gardnerville, Small Blessings Preschool in Carson City and Sunshine and Rainbows in Carson City.
Arts for Children of Nevada President Maureen Conlin also contributed to the exhibit.
Both exhibits will be shown through Nov. 9.
