Office Exhibition Series: "Kiddo" by Bryan Christiansen
Artist Talk and Reception

Nevada Arts Council
716 N. Carson Street, Suite A
Carson City

"The Nevada Arts Council features “Kiddo,” an exhibit by Bryan Christiansen, in its Carson City office through November 26 as part of the Office eXhibition Series (OXS). An artist talk and reception will be held Thursday, October 21 from 4:30 to 6:30 pm. Christiansen’s works are re-creations and deconstructions composed from found couches, armchairs, tables, mattresses and bed frames. Hunting the surrounding area for abandoned furniture, he reconstructs his finds into animals or deconstructs to create various “trophies” including “antler mounts” and stretched furniture “pelts.”

A South Dakota native, Christiansen attended the University of Nevada, Reno, and received his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 2009. His work has been exhibited widely throughout the area, and has been recognized with a Sierra Arts Student Endowment Grant, “Best in Show” at the 2009 UNR Student Exhibition, and a FY 2011 NAC Artist Fellowship Honorable Mention Award. A featured artist in the Stremmel Gallery’s Emerging Artists group exhibition, Christiansen launched Nevada Museum of Art’s Nevada Emerging Artists Series with his first solo exhibit in the summer of 2010."
