Evan Dent
Straight Shooter

Mr. Dent's exhibition transforms the attic space of the Silverland Gallery into a montage of cartoon history.

In his Reno News & Review article, local arts writer Brad Bynum explains: "Artist Evan Dent picked stills from old, public domain 1910s and ’20s cartoons and projected them onto the walls of the gallery. Using charcoal, he filled in the drawings directly onto the walls of the gallery, adding or subtracting images as he saw fit, and obsessively worked and reworked the surfaces."

Through September 17
