The faces of NeoRealismo: The New Image in Italy, 1932–1960 is an exhibition that portrays life in Italy through the lens of photography before, during, and after World War II. The exhibit features some 110 prints — primarily vintage photographs — captured by more than 50 Italian photographers, paired with the original magazines, photobooks, and newspapers in which they circulated. These are curated from private collections and on view exclusively at arteitalia.
The exhibit is the most comprehensive curated collection of journalistic images capturing the faces of Italy after World War II. NeoRealismo toured Europe to great acclaim and recently made its U.S. debut at New York University’s Grey Art Gallery. Exclusively sponsored by the E. L. Wiegand Foundation, NeoRealismo has exhibited at the Museo Italo Americano in San Francisco — and now at arteitalia in Reno.
Local artist Traci L. Turner explores matters of the heart and emotional vulnerability with her exhibit Cor Cordium. Working primarily in oils and employing bold, expressive color with loose brushwork in an impressionistic style, Traci presents a series of human hearts.
Cor Cordium is on view in the Holland Project Hallway Gallery through Nov. 22, 2019. Normal gallery hours are noon – 6 p.m. Wed. – Fri. , or you can make an appointment by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 775-448-6500.
The Holland Project has three exhibits on display in its gallery space.
In the Main Gallery is Hooked, an exhibition by 24 young artists who took part in the 2019 Teen Open Studio. Teen Open Studio is a partnership program between the Holland Project and Nevada Museum of Art, which introduces art and design practices to high school students from the region.
The Hallway Gallery has new work by local artist and longtime Holland Project volunteer, Ana McKay. Ana’s exhibition is titled, Low Tide, and consists of bold, colorful paintings inspired by the landscape of her childhood where the tide rises and sinks and the subject is unable to leave the liminal space of a harbor, neither drifting out to sea or coming home to shore.
The Serva Pool Gallery features Montana-based artist John Knight.
The exhibits are on display through Jan. 3.
