From June 9th-26th the Holland Project Gallery will be home to the wonderful illustrative work of local artist Lisa Kurt. A Tender Spark unveils Lisa’s most recent paintings which lead the viewer on mini narratives exploring human fascination with nature — particularly animals, and animal-like creatures, while also conveying mythologies, dreams and childhood memory.
Lisa Kurt is an artist and illustrator living and working in Reno, NV since 2008. She grew up and lived in the Boston area, receiving her BFA in design and illustration from the Massachusetts College of Art and Design and an MS in Library and Information Science from Simmons College. She is a current faculty member of the Nevada Museum of Art and teaches art to people of all ages.
An opening reception will be held on Thursday, June 11 with a special preview reception for Holland Project Art Patrons members starting at 5:30pm. The reception is open to the general public from 6:30-8pm with an artist talk in the gallery at 7pm.
