The Capital City Arts Initiative announces its exhibition, BRIC Art 3, with artwork by six northern Nevada artists at the City’s Business Resource Innovation Center [BRIC]. CCAI will host a reception for the artists on Thursday, September 27,
from 5 – 7pm. The BRIC is located at 108 E Proctor Street, Carson City. The exhibition and reception are free and the public is cordially invited. The exhibition will remain at the BRIC through late August 2013.
The exhibition features Jill Altmann’s fiber art, Steve Davis’ photography, Andy Gallian’s prints, Mimi Patrick’s ceramics, Stephen Reid’s drawings and watercolors, and Gus Bundy’s paintings.
Mimi Patrick’s mixed media ceramics begin the story of a mythological people from somewhere near here with relics from the archeological dig that revealed their existence. Stephen Reid’s abstract black/white drawings also tell a story of imaginative travels and his lively watercolors fill the office they occupy with color and action. Steve Davis’ strong black/white landscape photographs feature images from the Black Rock desert and the Stillwater National Wildlife Refuge near Fallon. Weaver Jill Altmann wove a large robe from rayon raffia and gold metallic yarn; she also wove intricate fabric and sewed garments for two pieces of wearable art. Andy Gallian’s etchings invite close inspection as he takes viewers into the world of flowers, poetry, and the night sky. Photographer Gus Bundy [1907 – 1984] known primarily for his photography also painted portraits throughout his lifetime. Never previously exhibited, seventeen of his oil portraits fill the BRIC’s back conference room with Renoites faces from the 60’s and 70’s.
