Memorandum at The Basement, an exhibition by Jennifer Charboneau
Jennifer Charboneau found a notebook in a fleamarket; her interest in notebooks and the beauty of cataloging thoughts, ideas, and life within the pages drew her to this well-aged notebook. As fate would have it, within this old notebook were several 100-year-old negatives capturing a time long lost, but a few fractions of seconds were saved for Charboneau to use for inspiration to create. This is where her exhibition Memorandum comes from.
Taking the negatives at face value, Charboneau uses paper and ink to recreate the images found on each of the negatives without regard to the positive form of the images. This leaves the mystery of the secrets hidden within the negative’s unviewable areas. The artworks created for this show are indeed extraordinary. The sublime vagueness of ink on paper combined with the negative image is a visual treat that should not be missed.
As you take in Charboneau’s exhibition, remember that there is a lesson for all of us to learn. Fate will offer you much, be open, for chance may take you on a journey you will want to experience.
Gallery on view from May 13th – July 31st, with Charboneau at the gallery most days.

“Y/Our Neighborhood” at The Depot Gallery, various artists.
The Depot Gallery in Sparks is offering an exhibit entitled “Y/Our Neighborhood.”
“With this exhibition, we want to bring attention to the ever-changing landscape of our region’s neighborhoods and how gentrification affects the people who call the Truckee Meadows home.”
There are many fun images and artworks in this group show. I was quite taken with the pinata. After seeing Y/Our Neighborhood, I contemplated how my neighborhood has changed.
Be sure to stop by The Depot next time you are in Downtown Sparks
~~Full disclosure, Dana Nöllsch, one of the authors of this article, has two pieces in the Y/Our Neighborhood show.~~
The exhibition runs June 4 – 25. Gallery hours are Fridays – Sundays, 12 – 5 p.m.

The June Pride Show Sierra Arts, a group show.
To celebrate Pride Month, Sierra Arts has the Annex Gallery devoted to artists who identify as LGBQT+. It is essential to see through others’ eyes as part of understanding the world around us, and the open expression of art is the perfect vehicle to do just that.
This may not be a show with lots of art on display, but each piece has its own power that should be seen.
