As the Holiday weekend is upon us, we decided to check out a few Galleries and exhibitions. We had three Galleries on our list, but as usual, we ended up overachieving.
Join us as we explore Art Trek for May 27th, 2023.

The Depot Gallery
This is the final weekend to see the art of Pippi Duchamp at The Depot Gallery, an excerpt from her Artist Bio.
Pippi Duchamp is my artist alter-ego name. The moniker is combination of the names of two of my heroes: Pippi Longstocking, the irreverent fictional character from Swedish children’s stories, and Marcel Duchamp, early 20th century avant-garde conceptual. Both are playful, mischievous and unconventional.Pippi Duchamp
My ‘real’ name is Kristin Taravella. I am a Swedish-American, multi-media, California based artist. I paint mostly with water media such as watercolor and acrylic and waxed based encaustic. In my work, I actively explore the celebration of mistakes and the letting go of perfectionism.
There is a playfulness in her art that drew me in and made me smile.
The Depot Gallery is open to the public from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m., Friday through Sunday.

Sierra Watercolor Society
Spring into Art, SWS judged show is at the Wilbur May Museum through Sunday, June 18. There are a lot of pieces in this exhibition ranging from landscapes to abstract and everything in between, all with the common thread of watercolor. So when you go, be sure to have enough time to take in the subtle nuances in technic from the various artists.
Check out the photos from the show.

Nevada Expressions III at the Sierra Arts Gallery
An exhibition at Sierra Arts Gallery in downtown Reno is a benefit for independent journalism from the Sierra Nevada Ally and KNVC Carson City Community Radio, Nevada Expressions III. Great art for a great cause; this is one you will want to take advantage of.
What does the future hold for Nevada Expressions? We asked Robin Cobbey that very question.
“Well, to begin with, we’re very happy that Sierra Arts Foundation have offered to extend our current fundraiser through June 24th. That’s a big win for the participating artists and the non-profits. But the idea of Nevada Expressions is for pop-up exhibitions. When need arises we’ll look at planning the next event but it would probably be later in the year.”Robin Cobbey
With fourteen artists, there is diversity enough to excite your senses and entice your creativity. Michelle and I happily spent time with each piece, as I am sure you will as well.
Here is a list of the artists in Nevada Expressions III.
Here are some photos from Nevada Expressions III to whet your appetite.

Pitch Black Printing Co.
Currently, at Pitch Black Printing is the photography of Sierra Hayre and her late husband, Casey, in the show “Stay at Home Mondays,” The images have a strong style that brings a particular emotion to the images. Their use of wide-angle lenses gives the viewer the feeling of expansiveness to these everyday scenes.
I do love this kind of photography; Sierra and Casey Hayre have mastered their style skillfully.
