Sleepy Time Collective

26 Cheney Street
Sleepy Time Collective.

Using the elephant as a symbolic touchstone and source of inspiration, the five-person Sleepy Time Collective presents a new series of works, each designed to engage the audience through one of the five senses. As a collective, the members of Sleepy Time found a connection between the tight-knit herds common in elephant culture and the community they strive to build. The works in this show draw from--and subtly refer to--this connection without making literal or overt references. Memory and nostalgia, individual identity within a group, inside jokes,
division of labor, and community allegiance are recurrent themes permeating the exhibition.

The Sleepy Time Collective is comprised of Antoinette Ortega, Anthony Alston, Rob Brown, Nick Larsen and Caedron Burchfield, all recent or
soon-to-be graduates of the University of Nevada, Reno.

September 27- October 26, 2007
Reception: Thursday, September 27, 5:30-8:30 pm
Gallery Hours: Wednesday: 12-3pm; Saturday: 11-2pm

Tahoe Gallery
Vern art

September 13-October 12, 2007

Behind Closed Doors
an exhibition of works by 12 artists from the Vern collective

The Gallery will be hosting an opening reception on Thursday, Sept. 20, from 5-7 p.m., with artists' lectures beginning at 5:30pm.

"The Vern collective was born as a response to an increasing compartmentalization and commodification of the international art world.

Vern, with roots in San Francisco, continues to produce a series of evolving exhibitions that display the fruits of members' ongoing work in a single forum. Through shows spread across North America and Europe, VERN seeks to expand the conversation among artists and the public by offering a new and developing perspective on contemporary art."
