Art show seeks artists in Nevada              Provided to the Tahoe Tribune 9-17-04
       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 artwork.
       "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 March 4.
       Additional information and an official entry form may be obtained by contacting Sierra Arts at (775) 329-2787 or by visiting Sierra Arts is a nonprofit, regional arts agency promoting and supporting the arts and artists to make the community a better place to live.
