Robert Morrison: Blood Artist in the Wilderness

Churchill Arts Council
Oats Park Art Center

151 E. Park Street
Fallon, Nevada

The Churchill Arts Council opens Blood Artist in the Wilderness, an exhibition of new works by Reno artist Robert Morrison at the Oats Park Arts Center. The artist will give a talk about the exhibition on Saturday, April 9 at 4:00pm, followed by a reception for the artist from 5:00 to 7:00pm. The exhibition will be in the Oats Park galleries through May 24, 2011.

Robert Morrison, a Professor at UNR, has taught sculpture at the university since 1968. Starting in the late 1980s, Morrison began to draw upon art history and rock 'n roll for his sculptural imagery. For this exhibition, he used bronze, wax, wood, and various mixed media to create the large-scale installation that occupies both Oats Park galleries. From the early 1960's, Morrison has exhibited his sculpture widely throughout the Western states and especially in Nevada and California.

The talk and reception, sponsored in part by Nevada Humanities, are free and open to the public. For more information, please call 775.423.1440.
