The College of Southern Nevada Department of Fine Arts will host an exhibition of drawings and sculpture by New York artist and Oswego State University New York Assistant Professor of Art and Design, Benjamin Entner. Entner’s artwork explores the boundaries and interplay between two and three-dimensional methods of art making. “Benjamin Entner: Classics” will begin Friday, July 7 and will run through Saturday, September 2, 2017. Mr. Entner will participate in a Preview, Artist Talk, and Artist Reception on Thursday, July 6, at 6 p.m. in room H120 on the North Las Vegas Campus.
Speaking of his work, Entner says; “Although I am formally trained as a sculptor, I am conceptually and technically drawn to a multidisciplinary studio practice that involves video, installation, performance, drawing, sewing, sound, and painting ... as well as the traditional modes of three-dimensional art, most especially woodworking. My work is driven by ideas or curiosities, and I simply try to find the best tools to address these.”
The CSN Fine Arts Gallery is free and open to the public. Gallery hours are from 9 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. The Fine Arts Gallery is located at the half circle drive near CSN’s main entrance, on the North Las Vegas campus at 3200 E. Cheyenne Avenue, one-mile East of I-15 North.
