The Churchill Arts Council will present a reception for the artists participating in the eighth edition of the Lahontan Valley Invitational, a show of recent works by Fallon/Churchill County artists in the Classroom Gallery at the Oats Park Art.
The reception and celebration of the Holiday Art Bar will be on Dec. 2, from 5-9 p.m. and will immediately follow the annual downtown tree lighting ceremony.
It’s a good time to have a cup of holiday cheer and peruse new artworks by local artists. For more information, you can call Churchill Arts at 775-423-1440.
Works in the show include photographs, paintings, metal sculpture and mixed media works. Artists participating in the exhibition include Lori L. Bishop, Judith Carlson, Barbara Glenn, Linda Hammond, and Tulsa Harrison.
Also on view will be artworks by Edith A. Isidoro-Mills, Sheree Jensen, Denise Johnson, Dick Keller, Gwynne Matlavage, Kori Meyer, Larry Neel, Michelle Nelsen, Marie Nygren, Sara Wharton Riggle, Kimberly Rowlett, Jaime Sammons, Kevin Sammons, Patricia Kupferer Sammons and Suzie Slaybaugh.
The E.L. Wiegand Gallery will feature “Black Lines Broken Lines,” a selection of large scale abstract paintings and works on paper, 1999-2015, by Montana artist, Jerry Iverson.
Iverson will be in town to conduct a gallery walk-through and talk on the exhibition on Jan. 21. Both exhibitions will continue on view at all CAC events through mid-March.
Coming up in January, on the 28th, will be a performance by one of the most acclaimed groups in the Jazz world, the Bill Charlap Trio.
Hailed as one of the premiere pianists of his generation, Charlap is known for his inspired interpretations of standards from the Great American songbook. He’s recorded albums featuring the music of Hoagy Carmichael, George Gershwin and Leonard Bernstein.
The trio, with bassist Peter Washington and drummer Kenny Washington is one of the leading ensembles performing today.
Tickets will go on sale next month and you can reserve yours by calling CAC. We’ll have more information on Charlap and the trio as the date draws closer.
