FLESHCRAFT | Madeleine Williams

HP MICRO GALLERY | AUG 12 – SEPT 30, 2019 | OPENING RECEPTION, WEDNESDAY, AUG 21, 6-8PM

Fleshcraft is a series of paintings in gouache, ink and watercolor by local artist Lainey Williams. All of them focus on the idea of the relationship between a parasite and its host; from the parasite’s perspective, it is creating something new and good, despite the harm they do to their hosts. However, the hosts in these images have welcomed the changes in their bodies, and in doing so have been transformed; they are neither wholly parasite, nor wholly human, but something entirely new.

Lainey has lived in Reno her whole life, and has been writing and drawing for almost as long. Storytelling informs everything she makes, whether it’s prose, paintings or comics. Her only hope for her work is that people can connect to it on an emotional level. She is currently working on a long-form webcomic about teen romance on the road (which you can find at on-empty.smackjeeves.com) as well as studying English (Writing) at the University of Nevada, Reno.

Fleshcraft in on view from August 12 – September 30 in the Holland Project Micro Gallery located inside Bibo Coffee Co. at 945 Record Street. Be sure to stop by the Opening Reception on Wednesday, Aug. 21 from 6-8pm!

ABOUT THE MICRO GALLERY + SATELLITE GALLERY

Organized and run by the Gallery Associate, our off-site Micro Gallery and Satellite Gallery supports emerging creators both as curators and as exhibiting artists. The Gallery Associate is a high school/college level intern that has the opportunity to oversee and curate full exhibitions in both off-site art spaces from start to finish, beginning with the selection of the artist/s and completing with de-installation of the exhibit. For exhibiting artists, both the Micro Gallery and Satellite Gallery allow an avenue to exhibit work professionally in a high traffic space in the heart of Reno’s university neighborhood and downtown river district. Special thank you to Paul and Deb Martin at Bibo Coffee Co. and Cafe Capello for their support.

The HP Micro Gallery is located inside Bibo Coffee Co. at 945 Record Street, Reno, NV and the HP Satellite Gallery is located inside Cafe Capello located at 248 W 1st St #202, Reno, NV.
