Western Nevada College News & Notes: Artist receptions set for Oct. 15 and Nov. 6
The community is invited to attend receptions for artists on Tuesday and Nov. 6 at the Main Gallery in WNC’s Bristlecone Building on the Carson City campus.
This fall, Jennifer Garza-Cuen has been showing photography from her “Eden” exhibit as part of a larger series titled “Imag(in)ing America” in the Main Gallery. Garza-Cuen will talk to attendees during her reception from 5 to 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday.
Garza-Cuen is a Pacific Northwest photographer who is an assistant professor of photography at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi. She was recently selected for a Guggenheim Foundation fellowship and a Rauschenberg Foundation residency.
“Eden” spotlights the northeast Vermont community of Adventists, Mennonites and Quakers where dairy farmers, mill workers and craftsmen gather at general stores; dinners are served in old wooden churches; and dances are held at the local Grange Hall.
“Imag(in)ing in America” depicts a series of U.S. locations as a residue of cultural memory, an inheritance. It is a metaphorical memoir, a narrative retelling of facts and fictions, and it also is a discovery of the dreamland that still is America.
Her art will be shown through Oct. 17.
A reception for Reno artist David McCamant is scheduled from 4:30 to 6 p.m. on Nov. 6.
McCamant’s love today is painting still life and plein air, following a career in the animation industry. He focuses on the quality of light and objects observed.
His exhibit will debut Oct. 21 and run through Dec. 17 in the Main Gallery.
