Between Plate and Paper

Printmakers' Conspiracy

June 3 - July 12, 2019

Reception: June 13, 5:00 - 7:00 PM

McKinley Gallery East presents “Between Plate and Paper,” an exhibition by the Printmakers’ Conspiracy.  The prints range from traditional methods like linocuts to modern approaches like screen printing.  The show is a dynamic collection of vibrant colors contrasting with graphic forms and lines.  The images encompass subjects from semi-abstract studies on the human body to naturalistic studies on animal life.  The works even touch on religious and mythological themes.

The Printmakers’ Conspiracy was founded over ten years ago in Reno.  The group is dedicating to creating and fostering an energetic printmaking community.  The group is made up of students, teachers, professionals, and people new to the medium.  The Printmakers’ Conspiracy holds meetings, viewings, and studio visits for its members and has hosted several group exhibitions.  If you have an interest in learning more about the community or joining the Printmakers’ Conspiracy, please contact Teal Francis.

Sierra Watercolor Society

June 3 - July 12, 2019

Reception: June 13, 5:00 - 7:00 PM

McKinley Gallery West presents “Summer Splendor,” an exhibition by the Sierra Watercolor Society.  The works in this show bring a feeling of lushness and abundance to the viewer.  The pieces range from delicate and subtle to vibrant and bold.  Many are traditional, realistic renderings while some are modern abstractions.  Each piece is meticulous, layered, and beautiful.  All the subjects of the works bring to mind the warmth and growth of summer: there are riots of flowers and plants, flocks of birds and herds of animals, sunlit architecture, and still landscapes. 

The Sierra Watercolor Society is a not-for-profit organization that holds five member shows and four workshops per year.  They host public meetings and artist demonstrations.  The Society’s mission is to increase interest and skill “in the art of water-media painting.”  The members come from all walks of life and give back to the community through educational programs and volunteer work.  More information can be found on their website.
