The Ebullient Colors and Textures of Spring
Main Gallery - February 18 to March 31
Three Reno artists collaborate to give us a kick start to spring. Through imaginative use of color, texture and mix media they transform NTA's main gallery into an exciting peek at the upcoming time of growth, renewal, of new life.
Daylene Moss is a teacher by profession and art has alwaysbeen in her life, whether for personal enjoyment, job-related, or use in the classroom. her art as continually evolving as she constantly looks for new mediums to play and create with. She loves using vibrant colors and enjoys the natural harmonious combinations they create. However – she isn’t afraid to test the extremes of the color wheel! All of Daylen's art is “one-of-a kind” originals, most with a 3-D component.
Ray Herschleb is a Multi Media artist whogrew up in the Yosemite Valley and moved to the Truckee Meadows in the 70’s. His use of color and negative space creates intrigue sufficient to pull even the casual passerby over for a closer look, which is exactly the point. Ray is a regular at the Midtown Art Walk during Art Town and the NadaDada Art show in Reno. In 2011, Ray was offered an opportunity to create his own gallery and work space becoming what is today, My Studio X. He has held charity art events annually there and produced solo shows.
Larry Hunt became interested in art in grammar school but spent most of his adult life as a businessman. He later turned back to his art. In 2009 Larry began producing art again and, after several successful art shows he renounced the business world to concentrate full time on his artwork.
Says Larry "Metal is self sustaining and resists change in shape and texture. Metal is strong. As I work with the metal we become a team. We bond with each other. As the metal resists me and my imagination and my tools, together we find the shapes we both can enjoy. During this discovery process each piece starts to tell me what colors it wants to be and textures it needs to bring the viewer into the piece."
Corison Loft - January 28 to February 24
Every year the BEAR League sets up an educational display at NTA to help promote its mission of teaching humans how to live safely in bear country. Children can see what a bear den looks like, and learn about the bears around Lake Tahoe.
The BEAR League was formed in the late 1990's and has been steadily growing ever since with over 1200 members and volunteers. Our goal is to educate people of all ages on how to coexist with bears when living in bear country. We have a 24 hour hotline for people to call if they are having a problem with a bear and need assistance or are looking for advice. No problem is too large or too small for our trained volunteers.
