Focusing primarily on progressive, emerging artists … the galleries at Sierra Nevada College provide a rich visual and intellectual environment not reliant on sales for support. This allows us to exhibit a wide array of artists whose work ranges from traditional practices to new media, installation, site-specific, and performance art.


This project is funded, in part, by a grant from the Nevada Arts Council, a division of the Nevada Department of Cultural Affairs, and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.



September 29 - October 28

Tahoe Gallery


Artist: Liv Aanrud

Time becomes tactile, ticked up through a rough, pungent grid of burlap. There are two sides to it–the one facing me, and the back–the blindside–where forms must be felt. This is an exhibition of the back stiching of my tapestries that trace the labyrinthine logic when the hand fills in for the eye.

Liv Aanrud received her BFA from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire in 2001, and her MFA from Rutgers University in 2011. Her work has been shown across the US and several cities in Europe. She lives in Los Angeles and teaches at the Armory Center for the Arts.

Reception: Thur. Oct. 20, 5-7pm
Artist Talk: 5:30pm PL320

“Small Worlds”

October 13 - November 11

Garage Door Gallery


Artist: Anther Kiley

Small Worlds traces the evolution of Kiley’s paper miniatures from eccentric childhood pursuit to commercial product-in-development. The miniatures present miniature cityscapes, plans, source images, and other artifacts, past and current.

Anther Kiley is an LA-based graphic designer and artist, and co-director of the Graphic Design program at California Institute of the Arts. He has a BA in history from Princeton University (2006) and an MFA in graphic design from the Rhode Island School of Design (2013). He is co-founder and one half of the Service Bureau, an interdisciplinary design studio that works across print and web design, exhibition design, and typeface design. He also maintains an artistic practice, exploring aesthetics and mythologies of function, production, and the design process, and pursues various entrepreneurial projects.

Reception: Thur. Oct. 13, 5-7pm
