Micro Gallery

AUG. 20 – SEPT. 30, 2018 | RECEPTION THURSDAY, AUG. 23, 6-8PM

In the Micro Gallery we are excited to have work by young local photog, Elizabeth Phelan. Shooting on 35 millimeter film, Elizabeth explores the concepts of youth, consumerism, and exploitation. Her newest body of work, Artifice, was conceived as a critique of the commodification, homogenization, and objectification of youth culture.

Come check out the exhibition during the opening reception on Thursday, Aug. 23 from 6-8pm and hang out with Elizabeth before she heads back to Washington University in St. Louis.

Artifice is on view in the Micro Gallery located inside Bibo Coffee Co. at 945 Record St. from August 20 – September 30, 2018.






The Micro Gallery is an off-site art space located in Bibo Coffee Co. at 945 Record Street. Organized and run by the Gallery Associate, the Micro Gallery supports emerging creators both as curators and as the exhibiting artists. The Gallery Associate is a high school/college level intern that has the opportunity to oversee and curate full exhibitions in the space from start to finish, beginning with the selection of the artist/s and completing with de-installation of the exhibit. For exhibiting artists, the Micro Gallery allows an avenue to exhibit work professionally in a high traffic space in the heart of Reno’s university neighborhood. Special thank you to Paul and Deb Martin and Bibo Coffee Co. for their support.
