Inspirations exhibition flier

The Capital City Arts Initiative [CCAI] announces its faculty exhibition, "Inspirations", at the Community Development Building [the Brick], 108 E Proctor Street, Carson City. The Brick is open to the public daily, 8am – noon, 1-4pm. The exhibition will remain in the building’s lobby exhibition space from October 23, 2017 through January 11, 2018. CCAI will host a reception for the artists on Wednesday, November 15, 5-7pm in the Brick.

For this exhibition, the Initiative presents work by the art faculty members from Carson, Dayton, and Douglas high schools. The artists include: Rita Borselli, K.C. Brennan, Kara Ferrin, Michael Malley, John Martin, Zoe Shorten, Malaynia Wick, and Kelley Yost. The exhibition includes photography, sculpture, drawings, ceramics, painting, and mixed media.

Sharon Rosse, CCAI’s Executive Director, said, “CCAI presents Inspirations to thank these dedicated teachers and to honor their ongoing, committed, and enthusiastic work they do inspiring their students’ imaginations and creativity — capabilities underscore students’ learning and, eventually, to being a strong employee. These teachers are amazing assets in our communities.”
