Time Capsule: A Valentin Yordanov exhibition
Thursday, Dec. 2, 2021 through Thursday, Feb. 23, 2022
Come out to see this artists unique approach to depicting some of the wonders of our world and the action that was part of creating the world. Valentin Yordanov uses images of some of the most fantastical aspects of the natural world and the man-made world together, to label as part of his personal time capsule selections or “ the keepers” in this salute to the awe inspiring places and subjects such as in the pieces titled “Big Bang,” “Rennesans – St Peter’s Basilica – 1506 AD,” “Parthenon – 447 BC,” “Transit” to name a few.

The title "Time Capsule" references historical and monumental monolithic buildings through human history and outer space itself. In the exhibit there are large canvases created mostly of values and no color. Drawings using directions and plans will overlap in multilayer compositions like maps without final destinations. The title of the artworks in this exhibit are inspired by time and civilization as part of the history and urban development before (B.C) and after (A.D).

“A Passionate Life”
Featuring artwork of public employees from across the state
 
On display through Jan. 13, 2022
Sometimes the perception of public employees are people interested in helping people. This may be one of their main passions in life. In this exhibit, the objective is for public employees to explore concepts about what ignites excitement for life in their artwork. Does it have something to do with their childhood dreams? Did they want to see the world? Or maybe their passionate reasons to explore came about as adults. Whenever or whatever these ideas came about, its time to passionately explore with the most outrageous use of color, line, shape, value, texture, or whatever else they can invent.

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.
