Art show features multiple perspectives
Nevada Appeal News Service
Only through the eyes of artists can so many perspectives be shown from just one image.
Twenty-two Nevada Artists Association members created 28 works of art from a single photograph of the Carson River in the fall. From a photograph taken by artist and Brewery Art Gallery director Doreen Sadilek, each artist accepted the challenge to create a work from the same image.
After hanging in the Brewery Art Gallery in Carson City for a month, their efforts are now showcased on the walls of The Record-Courier in Gardnerville.The public is welcome to drop in during business hours, 8 a.m.-5 p.m. weekdays, to view the display.
The artists were allowed to choose the medium of their choice and create their work in pastel, colored pencil, watercolor, acrylic, oil, mixed media, digital photography or photo-mosaic.
The total display gives an insight as to how individuals view the world in a unique way.
Among the NAA members who participated in the project were: Carson City artists: Santiago Chavez, Ray Freeman, Cecylic Okreglak, Alicia Kittess, Susan Schroeder, Ralph Phillips and Dorrine Sadilek; and Dayton artists Patt Skinner and JoAnn Wood.
Eight Minden artists – Sabina Bye, Nancy Clarke, Anne Armijo, Renee J.Ekleberry, Mary Sandhagen, Linda Townsend, Carolyn Denning and Helen Fanning – also participated. Gardnerville artists who participated include Ric Rose, Nancy Kilburg, Mechele Johnson, and Pam Brekas.
Markleeville resident Evelyn Yonker contributed her version as well.
The show will hang at The Record-Courier until the end of September. An artists reception will be from 5 to 7 p.m. Sept. 14 at The Record-Courier office. The public is invited to come view the show and meet the artists who created the works. Light refreshments will be served.
The show will be available to hang in another venue as of Oct. 1.
The Brewery Art Gallery is interested in making it a traveling show.
