Reno-based artist Kaitlin Bryson talks about her performance/installation piece, “To Become One of the Truly Dead,” shown as part of the group show “in Spite Of…” – a joint exhibition shown at SNC and the Holland Project.
The Holland Project and Sierra Nevada College have joined forces to bring art from both regions together in an exhibit entitled “In Spit Of”. Reno based artists and SNC faculty and alumni have contributed their artistic interpretations of unconscious faith and everyday beliefs.
The Fundamentals of art and design class put their acquired skills on display at the Trashion Show Thursday Nov. 8th on the 3rd floor of Prim Library. The usual hall of executive offices and art displays was transformed into a makeshift fashion runway lined with students eager to watch their peers perform.
Gallery Director Russell Dudley welcomed about 50 people, consisting mostly of students and staff, to Sierra Nevada College’s first art show of the year on Sept. 7. Former SNC Adjunct Professor Katie Lewis created the art show located in the gallery space on the third floor Prim Library, titled Process of Accumulation.
On Thursday April 12 in SNC’s Tahoe Gallery, Senior Glen Cheriton, wrapped up his B.F.A. course work with the presentation of his installation, Aggregate of all our Joys and Sufferings. The show opened with a warm reception of students, faculty and friends of Cheriton in attendance to show their support and appreciate the man hours of work put into organizing the show.
Sierra Nevada College’s Tahoe Gallery continues to gain recognition for its shows and improvements.
“We’ve already had our two receptions for visiting artists this semester. First was LIGHT ON YOUR FEET: A Study in Play, Participation and Collaboration,” said Logan Lape, president of the Tahoe Gallery. It was a group show out of Los Angeles curated by Autumn Beck and featuring artwork and inspiration by Jahan Khajavipour, SCTV, Eve Fowler, Book Club, Jason Gomez, Justin Vivian Bond, Christine Finely, Dawn Kasper and Jason Akira Somma.
