Christine Siemens, Kitchen Inventory, giclée print on aluminum, 2003, Nevada Touring Initiative, PANORAMA: Selections from the Nevada Arts Council’s Artist Fellowship Program
After many months of Jerry Lewis channelling Moholy-Nagy we have returned to the fields of painting, drawing and sculpture with two new group shows, Panorama and Panorama +. “Selections from the Nevada Arts Council’s Artist Fellowship Program” says the subtitle.
There’s a third exhibition as well, Yesterday & Today, completely different from the other two: a collection of traditional and contemporary work by the Southern Paiute and Western Shoshone. As I type this I am remembering Everett Pikyavit’s tight Basket, Jug (2003), lying on the shelf back there like a willow-wand lightbulb.
Yesterday & Today won’t come down until May next year, but the two Panorama shows are only here until November 26th.
