Art show features multiple perspectives

Only through the eyes of artists can so many perspectives be shown from just one image.

Twenty-two Nevada Artists Association members created 28 works of art from one single photograph of the Carson River in the fall. From a photograph taken by artist and Brewery Art Gallery Director Doreen Sadilek, each one accepted the challenge to create a work of art from the same photograph. After hanging in the Brewery Art Gallery in Carson City for a month, their efforts are now showcased on the walls of The Record-Courier in Gardnerville. It is a display well worth taking the time to go see and the public is welcome to drop in during business hours, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. week days, to view the display.

The artists were allowed to choose the medium of their choice and create their work in pastel, colored pencil, watercolor, acrylic, oil, mixed media, digital photography or photo-mosaic. Each artist brought a personal look to a singular theme, shown by their technique, vision and imagination as it is displayed on The Record-Courier walls. The total display gives an insight as to how each of us, as individuals, views the world around us.

Among the NAA members who participated in the project were: Eight Minden artists, Sabina Bye, Nancy Clarke, Anne Armijo, Renee J.Ekleberry, Mary Sandhagen, Linda Townsend, Carolyn Denning and Helen Fanning. Gardnerville artists who participated include: Ric Rose, Nancy Kilburg, Mechele Johnson, and Pam Brekas. Markleeville resident Evelyn Yonker contributed her version as did Carson City artists: Santiago Chavez, Ray Freeman, Cecylic Okreglak, Alicia Kittess, Susan Schroeder, Ralph Phillips and Dorrine Sadilek. Dayton artists Patt Skinner and JoAnn Wood added to the exhibit as well.

The show will hang at The Record-Courier until the end of September. An artist reception will be from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 14 at The Record-Courier office. The public is invited to come view the show and meet the artists who created the work. Light refreshments will be served.

The show will be available to hang in another venue as of Oct. 1. The Brewery Art Gallery is interested in making this a traveling show.
