LAS VEGAS – Nevada Humanities presents, Ginger-Sean-Montana: Our Daily Bread, curated by Sean C. Jones, on display at the Nevada Humanities Program Gallery in Las Vegas from Jan. 31 – March 27.
Ginger-Sean-Montana: Our Daily Bread is curated by Sean C. Jones, and features three artists: Ginger Bruner, Sean C. Jones, and Montana Black. Bruner, Jones, and Black have been sharing their creative visions since they were classmates together at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. Over the past few years, each artist has challenged each other – and themselves – to create a work of art each day, resulting in a significant collection of artistic creativity. Taking inspiration from the culture, people, and landscapes of Las Vegas and southern Nevada, this exhibition features a wide range of daily works in a variety of media ranging from pen and ink, to colored pencil and pastel drawings, and to photography.
Artist and curator Sean Jones says, “These artworks are often shared widely on social media, becoming a daily communication with people from all over the world. Artists have a need to be constantly working and artists all have their daily exercises. Sometimes the exercise can become an obsession. Sometime the obsession becomes the art.”
From Bruner’s photographs of their Las Vegas hometown, to Jones’ drawings reflecting his pop culture education, to Black’s love of nature and the Nevada landscape as it intersects with her thoughts about our responsibilities related to the environment and to each other, each artist finds their own unfettered mode of expression.
“Ginger–Sean–Montana: Our Daily Bread is a glimpse into the artist’s vision, what is seen in that innate sensibility that is the artists’ eye reflecting our world back to us,” said Christina Barr, Executive Director of Nevada Humanities.
Ginger–Sean–Montana: Our Daily Bread will be on display, from Jan. 31 – March 27, at the Nevada Humanities Program Gallery, which is located in the Art Square Garden Courtyard downtown in the Las Vegas Arts District at 1017 S. First Street, No. 190. The Nevada Humanities Program Gallery is open Monday through Friday, from 1 to 5 p.m., and until 9 p.m. on Preview Thursdays and the first Friday of each month. Nevada Humanities will host an opening reception for Ginger–Sean–Montana: Our Daily Bread on Thursday, Feb. 28, from 6 to 9 p.m., with an artists’ talk at 7 p.m. at the Nevada Humanities Program Gallery, 1017 S.
