Creativity and talent abound in the Capital City Arts Initiative’s Fresh Outlook 2022 exhibition.
The free exhibit is open through Aug. 18 in the Community Development Building (the Brick), 108 E. Proctor St.
Fresh Outlook 2022 shows 37 art works by 27 students from Western Nevada College’s Carson City campus. They used a wide variety of art media including drawing, painting, photography, printmaking, and ceramics.
Participating students include: Aspen Carrillo, Shiloh Cyphers, Ryan Defalco, Summerlynn Dennis, Jackie Estes, Jacob Flynt, Kaden Grimes, Katherine Holley, Winnie Kortemeier, Carmen Maciel, Jessica Matthew, Ethne Myler, Katherine Oppedahl, Alejandra Ortiz, Marletta Sophie Paul, Bryan Pott, Karyme Salgado, Erynn Schrauth, Joseph Torres and Madeline Wilson.
Motivation and creative inspiration for the students came from their instructors: Teri Barnes, professor Jayna Conkey, Frances Melhop, Colleen Reynolds, Janice Shedd, professor Rachel Stiff, and Matt Theilen.
“CCAI is delighted to present these strong art works to the community. It is great to work with WNC faculty and students to present this excellent exhibition and is grateful for their support. Fresh Outlook 2022 demonstrates the depth and diversity of the artists’ creativity,” said Sharon Rosse, CCAI executive director.
This show is another in CCAI’s ongoing series of student exhibitions in the Brick.
