The Capital City Arts Initiative announces its exhibition, “Photo Finished,” at the Community Development Building, 108 E. Proctor St., Carson City. Eleven artists from Carson High School have work in the exhibit. CCAI will host a reception for the artists from 5 to 6:30 p.m. Thursday. The free exhibition is available to the public 8 a.m. to noon and 1 to 4 p.m. Mondays through Fridays until March 31.

The artists are students in photography instructor Kara Ferrin’s Advanced Photo class.

“The work is the students’ capstone project, a culmination of all four years of photographic work and knowledge focused into their own artistic interpretations with few limitations set,” Ferrin said.

The Carson High students include Gilberto Avina, Kaelah Bowman, Kyla Cox, Jazlyn Duran, Haley Garver, Ben Granados, Andrea Lathrop, Dez McGilvray, Gabe Morton, Amber Rangel and Sarah Woods.

“CCAI is delighted to present this exhibition and grateful of the opportunity to work with Carson High faculty and students,” Sharon Rosse, CCAI executive director, said. “We are proud of the professional level of the students’ work and of their teacher who encouraged and nurtured their imaginations and skill levels.”

This show is another in CCAI’s ongoing series of student exhibitions in the Brick.
