I will be part of the B.O.D.Y show in Reno NV

B.O.D.Y. art exhibit and Grambo Report live at Studio on 4th.

B.O.D.Y. opens at Studio on 4th, Saturday, April 28th, 2007, 7-10pm. The exhibit runs through May 20th and is open to the public Friday and Saturday, 10am-6pm. Studio on 4th is located at 432 East 4th Street, Reno, NV.

Nine artists from around the United States are working with concepts surrounding the body-focusing on manipulations of the human form, biomorphic variations, and how technology has changed the way we communicate and interact with each other. Artists exhibiting at STUDIO on 4th include Isaac Grambo, Angela Katona-Batchelor, EunKang Koh, Sue Latta, Candace Nicol, Jeremy Mayer, Nolan Preece, Samuel F. Stimpert and Justin Strom.

On Saturday, April 28th at 7:30PM during the opening gala, Studio on 4th will feature THE GRAMBO REPORT, the nation's leading source for public access cable news. Isaac Grambo, a Boise, ID performance/video artist and political activist is teaming with Studio on 4th, for a once-in-a-lifetime event. An episode of the acclaimed series will be taped in front of a live audience, outside of Idaho, for the FIRST TIME. After the program, Anchor Isaac Grambo will be available to answer questions and sign autographs. Don't miss your chance to be a part of this ground-breaking news powerhouse IN PERSON!

Candace Nicol, the curator of B.O.D.Y. believes the artists’ works weave together a political/social narrative that exemplifies the complexities of the human body. “I chose 4 artists working in this area and 5 artists working outside of Nevada. I wanted a diversity of medium and content. The works being shown range from three-dimensional resin casts, from worn-out typewriter figures, from cast-steel gas masks that haunt at war ridden hysteria – to gigantic male and female nudes layered under a mist of resin and screenprints. One artist, Nolan Preece, long-time Nevadan artist will be showing his ‘Nolangrams,’ a photo process that accentuates sensuous curves and suggestive shapes that allude to the body erotic. Another artist, EunKang Koh, newest transplant to Reno and printmaking professor at UNR will showcase etchings from her series ‘Menu for Dinner’. In her work, she depicts interactions between human/animal hybrid creatures to address this subject matter.”

Studio on 4th, also known as the Dream Factory, has developed and grown from the generosity of two men, artist Jim Zlokovich and business owner Mike Steedman. The multi-use space has been reserved for showcasing music, visual arts, performing arts and events in the Reno/Tahoe area. For more information contact Studio on 4th, 775-786-6460.
