    LIGHT MAGIC on the PLAYA - Photos by Vanessa Franking

    07 Aug 2021 – 07 Sep 2021

    Exhibition Dates – August 7th thru September 7th Reception Date – Saturday, August 21st 12 to 4 pm Vanessa has been a burner since 2015, volunteering with the Burning Man ARTery and Documentation teams. She was drawn to the images made at night and in the blue hour with long exposures. In 2019 she was introduced to tube light painting, and now combines long exposure night photography and light painting to create her images of light magic. Her mother told her that her first word was LIGHT. The light painting process is done by moving various light tools before an open shutter, adding a dynamic variable into the typical photo exposure calculation. As an Electrical Engineer, Vanessa finds light painting the ultimate in creative problem solving.

    The Memory of Clay an Exhibition by Esther Mansur

    02 Jan 2022 – 31 Jan 2022

    The Memory of Clay Esther Mansur Exhibition: January 4th thru January 31st Reception: Thursday, January 20th from 6 to 8 PM Every potter knows that clay has memory. Clay is often perceived to be an indelicate sturdy clump of mud that we throw around, toss into fiery infernos, and slather in chemicals and powders in the hopes it will become glass. However, ask a potter and we will tell you that clay is a sensitive material that will remember how you treat it. Clay remembers what shapes you form and un-form it into, when you watered it and when you didn’t, when you picked it up too soon, when the AC unit turned on and hit just that one spot the wrong way, when you forgot it for a week, when it got too hot or too cold or too dry, and when you dripped that little drip and haphazardly wiped it away. The funny thing about the memory of clay, is that it is remarkably similar to the memory of us.

    Edeskuty an Exhibition by Abbe Rodriguez

    Exhibition: Nov. 5 - 25, 2021 Artist Reception: Fri. Nov. 5, 5-7 p.m. (socially distanced, masks required) Abbe Rodriguez is an emerging, self-taught artist from Los Angeles, CA. This is the world premiere of her first collection. “I decided it was time to pick up a paint brush. I’m Abbe. I’ve been through a whole lot of heartache in the last year. But who hasn’t been, right? When I paint I feel free of my heartache and worry. I feel hopeful and excited for what is going to come out of me, even if it's from a dark place or feeling sorry for myself. I’ve been searching for a way to express what it is like being a woman in this moment of time, in particular, being cut off from people you love.”

    Menagerie

    05 Jun 2021 – 27 Jun 2021

    I love two distinct mediums and switch back and forth between them depending on how I feel. Sometimes I work with paper, pen, and paint, and sometimes I work on sculptural assemblages. Both forms challenge me in completely different ways, which I find interesting. I started with the assemblages earlier in my career, then gradually expanded into drawing and painting. Creatures are my sweet spot and a recurring theme. I love creating monsters, odd people, cartoon characters, demons, gnomes, and so forth. I strive to recreate and share the joy of childhood by putting my imagination directly into a sculpture or onto a piece of paper. For me, there is a magic that comes with that -- I feel it during the creative process and it’s an intense and wonderful thing. I try to cultivate this and share it with my viewers. My assemblage pieces often start when I'm inspired by the character and personality of a particular object. Sometimes an object looks like a face or a body, and sometimes it looks like a little vehicle or perch for a sculpted creature. Lately I’ve been enjoying making miniatures. When painting, I often use photo references. Certain subjects always draw me ... science fiction, old electronics, weird buildings, and unusual vehicles. Sometimes I do a mashup of several photo references. I take my own photos and use images from the internet -- Ebay is great for pictures of old radios and toys. I start by creating a line drawing with a fountain pen and waterproof ink. After I get some sort of likeness with the photo, I go off script and do what my imagination and eyes tell me to do. I use paint, pencils, pastels, and some collage elements to add more depth and contrast. I think my best works are those that start off in a particular direction, then swerve into something else. I love the feeling of taking a risk or making a mistake and having a "wow" moment. Of course, there are lots of times where things don't work out. The great thing about mixed media is that you can always block out and recreate parts. A bit of a haphazard approach is what lets me come up with something unique and unplanned .... the magic of randomness. Let’s play!

    Topography & Tool Marks: Linocuts of The Sierra Nevada

    01 May 2021 – 29 May 2021

    Katherine Case uses the centuries-old traditional methods of wood and linoleum-cut printmaking to celebrate the abundance and diversity of the Sierra Nevada and the Great Basin. Some images are carefully hand-painted while others are multi-block editions. All are printed from hand-carved linoleum blocks. Meridian Press donates 25% of its profits to the Wilderness Land Trust, a donation which is earmarked specifically for our region of the Sierra Nevada and the Great Basin. The Wilderness Land Trust purchases private land and turns it into public wilderness land. Through Meridian Press, Katherine creates a positive feedback loop in which she spends time in the unique wilderness areas of Reno-Tahoe, creates limited-edition prints about these special places, and gives back the proceeds to help preserve them through time.

    03 Apr 2021 – 24 Apr 2021

    An exhibition by Tricia Poulos Leonard. "My artwork is abstract and created using mixed media such as oil pastels, ink, gesso, metal foils, tissue paper and collage paper. I work intuitively, letting the piece in front of me suggest the next move. I spend 13 or 14 hours on most pieces...more time if it is large. I work with music playing, usually jazz. I enjoy the process and hope that the work that I produce brings joy to the viewer."

    Yielding the Unknown

    02 Feb 2021 – 27 Feb 2021

    Tracy Kimmons's travels in March 2020 to Lisbon, Portugal led her to paint illusive images from her memories of the city’s color and sorted angles while she was an artist-in-residence at HANGAR Center of Artistic Research. She discovered that a lack of control in a foreign country during the pandemic would become an inspiration for painting fearlessly with her eyes closed in the first minute of the application. By doing this she reveals her emotional experience and tells a story. Tracy's process is to primarily paint with fine oil pigment and palette knife, along with brush strokes, on stretched canvas prepared with layers of oil ground.

    I Have Hunch by Michael Doering

    02 Feb 2021 – 27 Feb 2021

    ANNEX GALLERY “I Have a Hunch” An Abstract Journey with Michael Doering As an intuitive artist, “I Have a Hunch” best describes how I approach my art. I am constantly striving for a lack of resistance in my work while keeping planning and preconceived thoughts to a minimum. I approach creating in a spontaneous manner and allow my inner voice to make decisions on color, medium, titles, and marks on the surface. This results in unfiltered pieces, which are honest reflections of my true self.

    05 Jan 2021 – 30 Jan 2021

    The artwork that I create is rooted in a specific mark making style that can be described as patterns of redundant and haphazard scrawls and non-representational shapes. Each scribble and pattern exists on an individual basis, while also interacting with other lines and configurations to form a larger whole. My concept of mark making is an intellectual amusement of infinity, as well as a meditation of time, space and thought. Within the creative process, I enjoy the relinquishment of any conscious control during the process of drawing, and understand that the work is not finished until the canvas is filled.

    Nevada, along with the world, have seen and experienced a pandemic changing our way of life forever. Amid the frenzy of the early days of Covid-19, Gina Joy Holmberg was filled with fear, worry, struggle and feelings of hopelessness. To help cope and to give her friends something positive to look forward to, Holmberg’s work shifted into a new phase, for both paintings and sculpture. This work will debut at The Depot Gallery, Oct. 3. Northern Nevada based painter, photographer, digital artist, and sculptor, Gina Joy Holmberg, has been honing her skills for the past 25 years. Originally a graphic designer, Holmberg blends her painting skills with her ten years of design experience, bringing about a perfect marriage of her passion for art and nature. The exhibition will feature 15 paintings and 4 sculptures never before seen. Along with having the pandemic as an inspiration, she also continues themes of breaking down masculinity through imagery and color. “I use the icon of the antler to deconstruct masculinity, to understand it’s mysteries.”

    REMNANTS

    02 Oct 2020 – 29 Oct 2020

    REMNANTS The definition of remnant is:  1. remaining, usually small part, quantity, number, or the like.  2. a fragment or scrap.  3. a small, unsold or unused piece of cloth, lace, etc., as at the end of a bolt.  4. a trace; vestige Tuscarora, a tiny town in Northeastern Nevada, is littered with traces of mining activity from the 19 th Century. Wherever one looks there are tailings. The ground is littered with broken glass and metal fragments from the lives of people long ago. I pick up mangled rusty items, buttons, even bones from meals eaten 120 years ago, and wonder about the people, how hard their lives were, their endurance. The fragility of our landscape is scarred by man’s enterprise. For years I have struggled with the thought of the necessity of extracting the metals with seeming lack of regard for the land, the peoples or the animals who lived there. I have tried to find beauty in the results of those efforts. The tailings of enormous hand-dug mine tunnels are especially fascinating to me in the harsh light of the mountain desert. The colors of the upturned soils in light and in shadow constantly shift during the day. From ochre to cerulean contrasts strongly with the softness of the sage and bitterbrush. So that is where I paint most often. The shadows in different lights make wonderful abstractions. I carry a studio in my car because I paint on location. I travel a lot and paint wherever I end up. Some of these paintings are remnants of those travels. The furniture pieces are fragments of ideas I am still working on that combine disparate epochs of history. They present the notion that who we are now, what we are now, did not just come out of nowhere but is a result of all that has gone before. Thus the title REMNANTS. Bits and pieces of remains of past lives, past shows, the past.

As life partners and as individuals, Tracy and Liz have each been exploring subjects that intermittently veil and expose imagery within the context of abstract painting. Although they paint in their own separate studios, they meet each evening to discuss their progressions and combined purposes. One Californian. One Texan. These two women now live and work in Reno where they have found a climate of experimentation and community.

    TRASH, TREASURE OR TRUE ART?

    05 Aug 2020 – 28 Aug 2020

    Sculptures by Carolyn Guerra: Recycling is the theme of the day. Saving items from the dump is the patriotic thing to do. I collect all kinds of things not knowing their final destination: no longer useful keys, interesting old faucets, my father’s fishing lures, feathers, rotors for disk brakes, and old parts from discarded toys. Suddenly, an idea of how to incorporate the items into a sculpture fills my mind. I like the frugal notion of reusing things that would be tossed, and I would never have created this without this bit of trash.

    4th Street: A Legacy of Change

    06 Jun 2020 – 30 Jul 2020

    Photo exhibit showcases mid-century modern architecture RENO, Nevada – A photo exhibit recognizing the legacy of mid-century modern architecture in Reno is now available on Sierra Arts website. The exhibit was originally scheduled in the Annex Gallery but closures resulting from COVID-19 have prevented a live display. Titled “4th Street: A Legacy of Change,” the exhibit is a compilation of images by photographers Scott Hinton, Sebastian Diaz and Jeff John Sison. Their dramatic images document the remnants of three motor lodges that lined Arlington Avenue, an artery of Old U.S. 40 (now 4th Street). The exhibit is a selection from a digital archive of more than 100 images that explored interior rooms, décor, surrounding cityscape and the signage that was quintessential to Reno’s motor lodge era. This exhibit is part of the Reno MoMo Initiative – a year-long identification and celebration of the mid-century period and the brainchild of the Historic Reno Preservation Society. Reno MoMo is a citizen organization founded in 2018. Its members have ties to the architecture, design, art and historic communities in Reno. Others supporting the exhibition include the City of Reno, Nevada Arts Council, Nevada Humanities and Jacobs Entertainment. For more information and sites, check out renohistorical.org

Mundane forms can contain multitudes of meanings. These paintings arise from meditations on signs and symbols that represent change and perseverance.
