Transfigured Francis Bacon, by Kim Fields

The TMCC Art Galleries will show five spring exhibitions from Feb. 3 through March 13 throughout TMCC’s various campus locations.

An opening art reception will take place on Wednesday, Feb. 5, from 5-7 p.m. at TMCC’s Dandini Campus, 7000 Dandini Blvd., Red Mountain Building, V. James Eardley Student Center. 

Spring exhibitions will include: 

“Art That Moves Us” curated by T.W. Landis and Scottie Lockrem, TMCC Main Art Gallery

T.W. Landis and Scottie Lockrem have organized an exhibit that explores the design of automobiles, tools of the trade and symbols of motion in our environment.  We surround ourselves in the expression of many artists as we go to work, go on vacation or just go on a trip.  The art? Automobiles, motorcycles and the things that surround us as we enjoy our personal transportation.  Because of how deeply we are surrounded with these items, sometimes they become invisible to us.  The goal of this exhibit is to encourage people to see what they are looking at and to have a deeper appreciation for the aesthetics of the everyday. 

“Transfigurations” by Kim Fields, Red Mountain Gallery

Kim Fields is an artist and art educator who currently resides in Reno, Nevada.  She received her BFA from the University of Georgia's Lamar Dodd College of Art. Kim’s primary artistic medium is oil painting, and her work is influenced by various, historical schools of painting.  Her paintings make use of an extraordinarily rich color palette, and unconventional formal elements, that are combined to create a post-modern interpretation of the depicted subject matter. 

 “New Works” by Doreen Mortenson, Red Mountain Student Gallery

Doreen Mortenson is currently a student at Truckee Meadows Community College working towards her Associate in Fine Arts degree. Her sculpture Timecard Chaos won two awards in the TMCC 2013 student art show. She enjoys working in several different mediums, such as sculpture, painting, drawing, and printmaking. Social and environmental issues inform her art and she hopes to bring public awareness to these important topics through her art. 

“Flora Bella” by Trish Reynolds, Erik Lauritzen Gallery

Eureka, Nevada photographer Trish Reynolds’s passion for flowers began as a young girl in the garden and on the trail with her mom. “The textures, color combinations, and forms of flowers invite me to come closer. Peering into their depths is what motivates me to capture Mother Nature’s finest work and to share it with the rest of the world.” Trish, a member of the “Wild Women Artists” is a self-taught photographer and apprenticed with a master photographer in Portland, Oregon and went on to become a producer working for Nike, VISA, Microsoft and a host of other national and international clients. She is also an Oregon State University Master Gardener.

 “The Journey Home” by William L. Johnson, Atrium Gallery
