The nearly two-month long exhibition will display artwork from around the world and concludes with a reception on Wednesday, Feb. 1 from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. The reception will be located in the TMCC Main Art Gallery in V. James Eardley Student Services Center. Artists’ Receptions are free and open to the public.
- The TMCC Main Art Gallery will feature photographs by Nolan Preece, “Continuative: Making Connections Between Parallel Directions.” A photographer for over forty years, Preece is devoted to understanding and mastering the challenging techniques of early photography while also conceiving new processes including: Chemogram and Nolangram—an experimental process he originated in the late 1970s.
- The Red Mountain Gallery will feature “6 Sides 2 Every Story”—the outcome of a project organized in 2008 by TMCC Galleries Curator Candace Nicol. More than 450 participants illustrate their own perspectives by carving one side of a wooden cube. Each cube represents a story found in national or international articles, magazines or online. The project consists of 91 completed cubes and includes artists from the United States, Canada, England and South Africa. The project is funded in part by the Nevada Arts Council, the National Endowment for the Arts and Sierra Arts.
- The Erik Lauritzen Gallery will feature a large-scale collaborative print project “Reality/Distortion,” created by Arizona Print Group. This collaboration takes the vision of each individual artist and seeks to find equilibrium in a single image. Continuity comes from subject matter, media (photopolymer plate) and a design element of a horizontal line separating reality and distortion.
- The Red Mountain Student Gallery will feature paintings of contemporary culture—“POP!”—by TMCC student, Erin Shearin.
- The Atrium Gallery will feature “Alterations,”—created by TMCC Portfolio Emphasis students—which exhibit a stunning overview of fashion, photography, animals, and mandalas. Each artist incorporates alteration into their work, which is representative of the changes taking place in the world and the lives of young people. This show demonstrates their core studies in fine arts.
- The Meadowood Center Galleries will feature “Art Access for ALL” which includes a selection of VSA Nevada student artwork. “Art Access for ALL” includes works by student artists of all ages with and without disabilities, including veterans.
