Ronnie Eden’s mixed media piece will go on display at the Copeland Gallery on Nov. 1.

The next art exhibit at the Carson Valley Arts Council’s Copeland Gallery features artists Ronnie Eden and Pam Brekas. Their combined show runs Nov. 1 through Dec.28.

The Arts Council will be hosting an artist’s reception 1-3 p.m. Nov. 4 where visitors can meet the artists and preview their art.

Eden and Brekas have been friends and cohorts in painting since they first met in 2014. Both have art and public school teaching backgrounds, approaching painting in unorthodox ways.

Their love for abstraction, textures, collage, and color make a wonderful blend in their paintings. Award winning artists, they each tackle work differently yet have a commonality in concept.

Originally from Australia, Eden’s work has more representational images: horses, dogs, and more.

Breakas’ images are more textural. East Fork Gallery in Gardnerville and Artsy Fartsy in Carson City represent these artists. Both are involved in local shows and participate in a national project called Artists in Cellophane through Art-o-Mat.

Call the gallery for additional information or questions by calling the Carson Valley Arts Council office at 782-8207.
