Reception: July 10, 5-7pm
Metro Gallery in Reno City Hall hosts an exhibition of photographs by renowned local artist Jeff Ross. In this exhibit, Ross shares a behind-the-scenes look at local, regional and international artists. Ross has used his camera to capture dozens of dancers, musicians, actors and other performers backstage as they prepared for their performances. These photographs, including those of the Reno Philharmonic, Bruka Theater, African Children's Choir and more, will give viewers a private peek into the performers as they rehearse and otherwise prepare to step in front of the curtain.
“Behind the Scenes” is part of the 19th annual Artown festival, July 2014. The month-long summer arts festival features approximately 500 events produced by more than 100 cultural organizations and businesses in locations citywide.
Ross has been a commercial, editorial and fine art photographer since 1981. Having studied at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, he apprenticed under some of the leading photographers in Los Angeles, CA. Based in Reno since 1984, Ross now uses the latest in digital technologies. In 2012, he received a TELLY Award for KNPB’s “The Work of Art,” a program that was also nominated for a regional EMMY.
