The Through the Lens exhibition presents large color photographs gathered by Paul Mudgett during his travels around the West. The Capital City Arts Initiative’s exhibition continues in the Community Center’s Crowell Board Room through March 3. The room is open during all public meetings. Mudgett grew up in Southern California but moved under the shadow of the Sierra Nevada in 1992 to finish school at the University of Nevada. While digital photography has grown to be a passionate hobby, his career is in the cybersecurity field, working for one of the world’s leading cybersecurity firms. In his spare time, Mudgett also enjoys paddle boarding at Lake Tahoe, golfing, writing, travel, and playing guitar. “My wife refers to me as the accidental artist,” said Mudgett. “I bought my first DSLR because it seemed like a hobby that would be a great distraction from work, but then I got hooked on learning all I could about the technical details of the camera, good light, composition, and anything else I could absorb.” CCAI is an artist-centered not-for-profit organization committed to community engagement in contemporary visual arts through exhibitions, illustrated talks, arts education programs, artist residencies, and online activities. The Initiative is funded by the John and Grace Nauman Foundation, Nevada Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts, Nevada Humanities and the National Endowment for the Humanities, Kaplan Family Charitable Fund, U.S. Bank Foundation, Southwest Gas Corp., Foundation, Steele & Associates LLC, and CCAI sponsors and members. The Governor’s Office of Economic Development provided additional support through its Nevada Pandemic Emergency Technical Support Grant for 2021.
