IN THE MAKING | Michelle and Peter Laxalt

Using her personal history as inspiration, UNR sculptural ceramics student Michelle Laxalt creates pieces that evoke a whimsical world of interactions and child-like wonder. In almost direct contrast, Peter Laxalt’s drawing and paintings merge design and graffiti aesthetic into exaggerated figures and forms. Combined the sibling’s work shares the thread of moving the viewer from the common world into a more fantastical one.


Kelly Peyton’s newest body of work centers on the personal impact of everyday concepts, quotes and statements. Utilizing thrift store frames, pen, ink and transferred images, Peyton creates pieces that explore and share how the seemingly cliche can become intimate.

HITHER & THITHER: A Celebration of the Temporal | Rachael Scala

In her first exhibition, Rachael Scala draws from her experiences as a native Nevadan to create an installation exploring the passing of time through Nevada’s seasons. With each of her four altars, Scala isolates the seasons while connecting them to the greater ebb and flow of life cycles.
