THE PTERROR: AN ILLUSTRATED LOOK AT LOST BIRDS | Gency Warren 

HP SATELLITE GALLERY | MAR. 5 – JUN. 29, 2020 | RECEPTION, THURSDAY, MAR. 28, 6-8 PM

A fellow Reno desert rat, Gency Warren has been evolving her style since she and her older brother first started drawing cartoon characters as kids. She looks to artists like Escher, Pettibon, and Topor for inspiration, and – most of all – her peers and influencers who challenge convention with “low brow” minimalism, humor, and realism. Common mediums in her art include ink, watercolor, scratchboard, and pencil; often using a stippling technique and touch of “whimsy.” She has been fortunate to display her work in half a dozen local art spaces, cafes, and bars since 2008. You can see more of Gency’s work on Instagram @gencills.

The Pterror is a series of prehistoric bird illustrations using pen, ink, and watercolor, on Arches 300 lb hot and cold press paper. After her last show, “Creatures and Cryptids,” Gency developed a fascination with animals and beings shaped solely through fossils, fiction and fantasy. Channeling this perspective to our prehistoric feathered friends, “The Pterror” is an illustrated series of primitive birds, filling the gaps between what we know and what’s left to the imagination. The series pulls Terror Birds, Dodos, and Pterodactyls out of the Cenozoic and Jurassic eras and into modern composition, peppered with a few Reno landmarks and settings.

LAST TRAIN TO SATANSVILLE | Richard Jackson

HP FERINO GALLERY | Feb 7, 2020 – Apr. 30 , 2020 

Richard Jackson was born and raised in Reno, Nevada and is the current Ceramics Tech at the University of Nevada, Reno Art Department. He has been actively involved in art his entire life, first doodling skulls in 1973/74 and beginning his studies in ceramics in 1987. Jackson feels fortunate to be mentored by great Nevada artists such as Michael Sarich, Edw Martinez, and Fred Reid stating, “I am eternally grateful for having those old guys around. They still make skulls. I still make skulls. I don’t see much change in the future.” Jackson dedicates this new body of work to his old buddy, Scott Tranchida. Rest in Peace.
