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.


“Basin and Range”

January 29 - March 23

Tahoe Gallery

Nevada Touring Initiative is coming to SNC Tahoe to display their exhibition Basin and Range

Artist: Nevada Touring Initiative 

Basin and Range features eighteen Southern Nevada artists who were invited to create as a response to and in honor of a tract of Nevada land covering 700,000 acres, now identified as the Basin and Range National Monument. This area not only includes amazing wildlife and incredible desert landscapes and formations, but also ancient and contemporary artwork: hundreds of petroglyphs carved an estimated 4,000 years ago, and Michael Heizer’s mile-long City. As most Nevadans know, there is a great deal more to our state than casinos and Area 51. The Basin and Range exhibition is evidence of that.

Closing Reception: Thursday February 15, 5 – 7pm
Artist Talk: 5:30 PL320
