THE EVENT WILL BE A RECEPTION AT THE
“TILTING THE BASIN” EXHIBIT….
ON DISPLAY IN AN ARTS DISTRICT WAREHOUSE
920 S. Commerce Street
The “Tilting the Basin” exhibit was on display at the Nevada Museum of Art last fall, and has been brought to Las Vegas as a special event to encourage and support the plans for The Art Museum at Symphony Park.. Curated by NMA’s JoAnne Northrup and Las Vegas-based Michele C. Quinn of MCQ Fine Art, “Tilting the Basin” reflects the unique voices and approaches of artists working in Nevada. The exhibit highlights the work of six artists in depth, showing several examples from each in a variety of media.
Featured artists include Galen Brown, Justin Favela, Katie Lewis, David Ryan, Brent Sommerhouser and Rachel Stiff. The remaining artists’ work gives visitors a wide-ranging picture of the art being created across Nevada today. Including painting, sculpture, drawing, photography, mixed media, street art, installation, sound performance, fiber arts and new media. Some work will live exclusively on social media, others, exclusively as street mural.
The exhibit closes on May 14th so this will be the last chance to see and experience these extraordinary works of contemporary art. Join us on Wednesday, May 10th. Enjoy the exhibit and learn more about the plans for establishing The Art Museum at Symphony Park.
