A DANGEROUS PLACE TO BE | Daniel Alejandro Trejo

HP MAIN GALLERY | OCT. 23 – NOV. 22, 2019 | OPENING RECEPTION: FRIDAY, OCT. 25, 6-8PM

Daniel Alejandro Trejo’s work acts as an exploration of concepts related to absence and fragility through an emphasis on volume and color, while also considering density and mass. Viewers project any subconscious emotions, attitudes, or motivations through the ambiguous forms of the sculptures. The tolerance for ambiguity is challenged; being too visible or too ambiguous can jeopardize existence in its entirety, and enact violence that is physical and emotional resulting in abject gossip, slander, and perception of “the other” enabling abandonment or rejection.

Daniel is an emerging visual artist based out of Stockton, CA working in ceramic sculpture and installation. He received his BA in Art Studio and Art History from University of California, Davis. Exhibitions include L.H. Horton Gallery in Stockton, E Street Gallery and Alpha Fired Arts in Sacramento, ESXLA in Los Angeles, and ATM Gallery in Austin. Daniel’s other projects include co-organizing Sacramento Zine Fest under his collaborative project, Unibrow Collective.  He has also been awarded the Howard R. Kottler Testamentary Trust Scholarship for a two-week intensive residency he participated in at Watershed Center for the Ceramic Arts in Newcastle, ME. Trejo currently holds residency at Verge Center for the Arts in Sacramento where he maintains his studio practice. You can see more of Daniel’s work at trejodaniel.com.

Daniel’s exhibition, A Dangerous Place To Be, is on view from Oct. 23 – Nov. 22 with an opening reception on Friday, Oct. 25 from 6-8pm. Regular gallery hours  Wed-Fri from 12-6pm or by appointment by contacting alisha@hollandreno.org or calling 775-448-6500.

COR CORDIUM | Traci L. Turner

HP HALLWAY GALLERY | OCT. 23 – NOV. 22, 2019 | OPENING RECEPTION: FRIDAY, OCT. 23, 6-8PM

Traci L. Turner is a local painter whose work often explores matters of the heart and emotional vulnerability. Working primarily in oils and employing bold, expressive color with loose brushwork in an impressionistic style remains a constant element in Traci’s work. For her exhibition, Cor Cordium, Traci presents a series of human hearts which she has been building upon over the course of 2 years. During that time the series has evolved to be as much about color as it is about presenting each of the hearts as a sort of token to remind people about the act of feeling. With this series Traci sets out to challenge both herself and the viewer to be mindful of what is inward. Who are we and what do we truly desire, in the deepest depths of our core? What kind of effort are we making to align the external with the internal?

While growing up in the Washington, DC metropolitan area, Traci discovered an inclination towards art and creativity. Her pursuit of an artistic career led to her receiving a more formal education from Maryland College of Art and Design, graduating in 2004. Since 2013, Traci’s paintings have been featured in several of Reno’s local art spaces and businesses, including Lasting Dose, Reno Art Works, Never Ender and The Holland Project. In 2017, Traci participated in the TFAA Visiting Artist Residency at the Torpedo Factory in Alexandria, VA. Recently, Traci completed her first work of public art in 2018, which can be seen at the corner of 5th & Center St. in Downtown Reno. To see more of Traci’s work visit tracilturner.com.

Cor Cordium is on view in the Holland Project Hallway Gallery from Oct. 23 – Nov. 22, 2019. Join us for the Opening Reception on Friday, Oct. 25 from 6-8pm! Normal gallery hours are 12-6pm Wed. – Fri. or you can make an appointment by emailing alisha@hollandreno.org or calling 775-448-6500.
