Reception: May 5th 5:00pm – 7:00pm

McKinley Gallery East hosts mixed media painter Susan Handau.  Reflections of the Day is a collection of multi-media paintings that draw inspiration from the beauty of color and mystery of nature.  Each piece is a textured surface built by layering wax, oil, acrylic, ink and fiber which are then fused by heat. The work explores the process of rendering nature in an abstract form which then enables the viewer to contemplate the pleasure of color, pattern and texture thus freeing oneself from objective context.

McKinley West Gallery in McKinley Arts & Culture Center hosts abstract painter and sculpture Katrina Lasko.  A Woman Under the Influence is a conceptual series in which the artist uses materials that are commonly thought of craft materials for ‘woman’s work’ – yarn, felt, sequins. These homely materials become vehicles for abstraction, conveying abstract thought. The artwork, and the materials are a tribute to the work women do to maintain balance in their own lives and in their families and society: materials that allow them to be useful and to escape thoughts of pain, anger, sorrow – political, social or psychological.

Reno City Hall - First floor lobby

April 25th – June 3rd, 2016

Reception: April 28th, 2016 5:00-7:00 pm

Metro Gallery at City Hall hosts local artist Patti Christensen-Woodard. Not Your Mother’s Garden – Explorations and Meditations is a series of pastel paintings that extend beyond pure botanical accuracy. It is also about how the painting feels and the ability to take viewers on a visual journey of floral impression and semi-abstract interpretations of organic forms.
