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

Shown 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.
