Artist reception Jan. 24 for Carson City exhibit

The Capital City Arts Initiative presents its new exhibition, “A High Desert Tribute” by Sidne Teske in the Western Nevada College Bristlecone Gallery.

The free exhibit is open through April 13, Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Join for the opening reception on Tuesday, Jan. 24, from 5-6:30 p.m., which will feature an artist introduction at 5:30 p.m.

Thirty-six paintings offer a retrospective of Teske art from 1995-2022. Working almost exclusively in soft pastels, Teske takes the scale of her landscapes and figure studies well-past traditional small compositions into large works that measure in square feet.

Her active mark-making brings viewers into each composition while the dramatic large scale commands attention. Teske has received many awards and honors.

Her paintings are included in numerous collections at Renown hospital in Reno; Interlachen in Colorado; Embassy Suites at South Shore; and Harrah’s High Roller Suite at South Shore.
