September Exhibits at Depot Gallery and Sparks Museum

The Depot Gallery

Janice Knight “The Elegance of Wilderness”
September 4 – 28, 2021
New hours! Now open Sunday. 

The Great Basin, which includes all of Nevada and parts of five other states, contains desert, forest and alpine environments. This massive watershed is home to a diverse habitat including the planet’s most ancient trees and dozens of mammal, bird, and reptile species. The impressive geology may go unappreciated by many, but color and form abound in the peaks and playas.

“The Elegance of Wilderness” was first presented during Artown 2016. It was a realization of decades of landscape and nature photography, and has since become a living, growing project that characterizes the dynamics of the Great Basin in its moods and seasons. Each year brings its own challenges, from drought to floods and devastating wildfires.

The Depot Gallery is a collaboration with the City of Sparks and Sierra Arts Foundation and supported, in part, by the Nevada Arts Council, a state agency, and the state of Nevada.
