Gallery East – Richard Bailey
Gallery East at McKinley Arts & Culture Center hosts Reno After Dark, a series of local night time photographs by Richard Bailey from April 2nd to May 18th, 2018.
In our modern western culture, people tend to rush to one place to another without noticing their surroundings. Richard Bailey sets out to capture the incredible beauty of an urban environment during a time that people normally avoid, namely night time.
This series is part of an ongoing project to reproduce the vision of Richard Bailey of a nighttime urban environment with digital photography, and to mimic what humans actually see.
McKinley Arts & Culture Center’s Galleries East & West are two of three galleries operated by the City of Reno. To learn more please visit the City of Reno’s Arts & Culture page.
Gallery West – Eric Diehl
Gallery West at McKinley Arts & Culture Center hosts Neighborhood Watch, a series of acrylic paintings that explore the sacred moments found in suburban design by Eric Diehl from April 2nd to May 18th, 2018.
Eric Diehl weaves together cinema and acrylic paint by using video screen shots for his work, investigating the state of constantly shifting boundaries of the middle class in the USA. Television plays a huge role in his work as he uses painting technic to imitate optical effects of television and voyeuristic shots to explore familiar neighborhoods implicating the viewer, and lending a fetishistic unease to picturesque front lawns and driveways.
