The Nevada Basin to Range Exchange is the topic of the next Carson City Rotary Club meeting. The project is an opportunity for artists, arts organizations and arts related businesses to come together and think about how to bring urban and rural arts together in Nevada.
The public is invited to attend. The meeting and lunch will be held on Tuesday, December 14 at noon in the Grand Ballroom of the Brewery Arts Center.
Former participant Candy Webb will present the project which was centered around the town of Gerlach. She collaborated on the project with Scott Hinton, photographer and educator at the University of NV, Reno, and Crimson Rose, one of the founders of Burning Man.
Webb chose the Gerlach region because she lived in the neighboring Empire when she was very young and her father was a minor. “We wanted to create a new vision for Gerlach. I love the Black Rock Desert and Pyramid Lake just like my mom before me, so I wanted to connect with the community of Gerlach, ”she said. “We worked with the Gerlach K-12 school. Through photography, oil painting and self-portraits, we have created a short film about the city.
This film and associated artwork were then shown at the Walter McNamara Corridor Gallery at UNR.
Nevada Basin to Range Exchange, operates through the Nevada Arts Council. More than 50 artists participate in the annual event.
