CCAI: Grad Night

I can’t hope to do a better job of summarizing the Capital City Art Initiative’s current show, “Grad Night,” than Brett M. Van Hoesen did. Hoesen is Assistant Professor of Modern and Contemporary Art History at UNR, and her essay on the show is here. The show itself features work by recent graduates of the Art Departments of both Sierra Nevada College and UNR, and runs at the CCAI Courthouse Gallery through September 2. The exhibiting artists are Bryan Christiansen, Aimee Doran, Jeff Erickson, Jonathan Farber, Jonah Harjer, Ahren Hertel, Christina Lee, Jocelyn Meggait, James Nagel, Dominique Palladino and Melissa Swanson. Here are a few pics I snapped at the reception:








Nada Dada Motel

For those of you who don’t already know about the Nada Dada Motel event happening in Reno this weekend, check it out at the link below. Some good friends, and great talent, perform/exhibit at this event, which is accidentally in its third year at the El Cortez Motel downtown. If you go, leave your squeamish, prudish, dull, traditional, and conservative sides at home:
