Sierra Arts is a nonprofit, regional arts agency promoting and supporting the
arts and artists to make the community a better place to live.
The biggest little art show in
Nevada announces its call for entries to all artists within the state for the
upcoming show titled "Nevada: The Energy Within." This fifth edition of the
exhibition is sponsored, in part, by a grant from the Nevada Arts Council, a
state agency, and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency, with
further assistance from Sierra Pacific Power Company and Nevada Power Company.
Artists living within the borders of the
state of Nevada are invited to submit entries that deal with the theme "Nevada:
The Energy Within." This theme may suggest a variety of images related to
natural resources, thriving arts communities, bright lights and neon of the
casino districts, energy or other topics the artist sees fit.
All entries are to be submitted in a
standardized size of 2.5 inches by 3.5 inches, with 50 finalists selected from
all the artwork entered. The show will be juried by Jon Winet, a highly
acclaimed artist and new media researcher and educator.
Awards to the top 10 artists of $100 each will be granted to those pieces juried
to be displayed in the show. An entry fee of $10 per piece must accompany the
"The Energy Within" will be on display at
the Sierra Arts Galley in the Riverside Artist Lofts, 17 S. Virginia St., Suite
120, Reno, Nev., from Nov. 15 to Jan. 7. The public is invited to a reception
for the artists from 5 to 7 p.m. Nov. 16 at Sierra Arts Gallery.
Following the showing in northern Nevada, the selected work will travel to
Nevada Power Company, 6226 West Sahara Ave., Las Vegas, Nev., from Jan. 17 to
