TMCC Main Gallery
The TMCC Main Gallery will feature the 52nd Annual TMCC Art Faculty Exhibition. The 52nd Annual TMCC Art Faculty Exhibition showcases the creative research of the TMCC Art faculty. The faculty comprises individuals with backgrounds ranging from studio art and art education to education and biology, producing an exhibition that reflects a broad range of creative expression.
Red Mountain Gallery
The Red Mountain Gallery, located on the third floor adjacent to Admissions, features In Either Case/To Not Shy Away by Miles Hall. Hall is a painter, art educator, and sometimes an art journalist. He grew up in South Lake Tahoe, instilling in him a love for drawing and painting. He obtained a BFA from The Art Institute of Boston, pursuing his graduate work at the State University of New York at Purchase, obtaining an MFA in Studio Art and an MA in Contemporary Art History, Theory, and Criticism. Hall’s show represents a broad sampling of his works and points along his journey to express things as he has seen them. Some of its subject matter distills from our mundane, physical space with objects, places, and people Hall knows well.

Erik Lauritzen Gallery
The Erik Lauritzen Gallery, located on the third floor of the Red Mountain Building near office 321, features Involution by Jordyn Owens. Owens is an artist born and raised in Reno, Nevada. Owens utilizes her camera to capture and revive the moments that appear lost or ephemeral. She views photography as a tool to express gratitude and a lens to discover a deeper meaning of life. Owens' exhibit, Involution, is a collective of works visually expressing her inner thoughts. She has written in a journal steadily for the past five years. For Owens, it is a ritual dedicated to connecting to her inner world. In this photographic series, Owens confronts the complexities of her identity by exploring memory and personal history. The cracks revealed within the photographs are a metaphor for the collapse of time; they represent the fusion between the past and present self.
Red Mountain Student Gallery
The Red Mountain Student Gallery, also located on the third floor, features Tiny Details by Julianna Horvath. Horvath grew up in Truckee, California, and is currently a Reno-based artist. Horvath received her Associate of Arts degree in Fine Arts at Truckee Meadows Community College and is completing her Bachelor's in Fine Arts at the University of Nevada, Reno. Horvath works primarily in painting and collage. Her artwork investigates feelings of peacefulness and relaxation, encouraging the viewer to take a closer and longer look at each art piece. In Horvath’s show, she encourages the viewer to take a moment to appreciate and notice the tiny details in each painting. This collection features Full Garden Scene, the largest of her works, and depicts the entire scene alongside the other eight pieces, which are zoomed-in versions of certain sections. These eight pieces invite the viewer to look closer and notice all the tiny hidden details.
All art galleries are located at 7000 Dandini Boulevard, Red Mountain Building, Reno, NV, and are open with building hours. For more information, contact TMCC's Art Galleries.
