Southwest - Scapes
On display through Thursday, May 26, 2022
Artist Reception Friday, March 4 | 5-7 p.m.
In the Southwest-Scapes exhibit, scapes can come in many different ways...Scapes cannot be alone though, they have to be paired with a place. So, there may be landscapes, ocean-scapes, sky-scapes, underwater-scapes, mountain-scapes, you may be able to see a moon-scape from this side of the world as well. There are also interior-scapes like office or work-scapes, home or house-scapes, amd barn-scapes. We hope artists will be showing you what desert-scapes look like in Las Vegas. Just think of this, natural beauty in a simpler, drier landscape can be perplexing if you are not used to looking for a different kind of beauty. Through the works of local artists, we hope you will be able to see the surrounding landscape in different values, colors, and textures, abstracted through their eyes and placed on the canvases in front of you.

Help Is On the Way by Shan Michael Evans
On display through Thursday, June 23, 2022
Artist Reception Thursday, May 19, 5-7 p.m.
Established Las Vegas artist since the late 1990s. Constantly redeveloping my mix-media approach to illustrations shown throughout the Valley over the decades. A purveyor of public art in the city, through local projects including ZAP, AMP, and the Aerial Gallery, my work can been seen on numerous Las Vegas streets. Within a print catalog consisting of 1000's of images; minimal characteristics, critical design development, a strong sense of self-taught pride, and over all whimsical cheerfulness have been recurring themes in my work. Participating in the many public projects in this city for many years is an abiding inspiration and motivation.

Vintage Goes Contemporary

Artist Reception Thursday, May 19, 2022 | 5 - 7 p.m.
Las Vegas Days (Formerly Helldorado Days) originally began in 1934 as a rowdy affair to bring in some money and allow the Hoover Dam workers to blow off some steam. By the following year Nevada was a booming town with Freemont Street filled with saloons, gambling halls, hotels, shops and restaurants. With fear of the boom ending and Las Vegas becoming a ghost town, Elks Lodge No. 1468 joined forces with the chamber of commerce and local businesses to create the more family friendly rodeo event and parade we know of today. A festival with such a rich history comes with many stories and images throughout the years. To commemorate Las Vegas days, The City of Las Vegas has asked local photographers to reflect on images of the past and reinterpret them through their own lenses of today. These artists have shown the growth and change that Las Vegas has seen the last 88 years while still keeping the traditions alive.

This exhibit began with one word and has been translated into several different ideas about this word, "Green." It is that simple. Green is a color, but what else is it? Does it have a deeper meaning, feeling, emotion? Artists explore the myraid of meanings and associations they would like to translate to the viewer. All media were considered for this exhibit and it began as an open call that was then pared down to the pieces that best represented the color and meaning.

Windows on First: “Fading Light/Shifting Landscapes”
An Installation by Megan Berner

On display through April 15, 2022
The exhibit is a series of digitally printed fabric pieces made from images using photographic transfers and cyanotypes* of Nevada desert and Arctic landscapes. The artist explores the way landscape shifts in the changing light over time with an interest in liminal spaces, both internal and external.

Originally from the high desert, Megan Berner is a visual artist living and working in Reno, Nevada. Berner works with digital and experimental techniques, such as instant film, digital transfers and cyanotypes. Her work is greatly influenced by the landscape of her native Nevada home as well as the vast prairies of the Midwest. She creates site-specific installations that incorporate video and sound and constructs performative scenes that ultimately exist as photographs. Megan’s work has been shown nationally and internationally and is part of multiple collections including the Center for Art and Environment at the Nevada Museum of Art, University of Arizona Art Museum, the University of Iowa Special Collec¬tions and Southern Graphics Council International Archive. More information on the artist is available at www.meganberner.com.

*Cyanotype is a photographic printing process discovered in 1842 that produces blue prints using chemically coated paper and light.
