Legendary Lands Reception

July 19, 2019 @ 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northern Nevada has partnered with talented local artists of varying styles and mediums to produce an eclectic collection of visual art celebrating young imaginations. Little Brothers and Sisters from the BBBS mentoring non-profit participated in a sensory rich creative writing workshop during which they were asked to envision a Legendary Land of their own creation. These lands are as varied and creative as the Littles who made them – sometimes scary, sometimes tranquil, sometimes silly but all the time a chance for a blossoming writer to express themselves and practice those invaluable literary skills. Our Littles documented their adventures in travel passports that were then passed on to artists to inform and inspire their work. This exhibition will showcase art, writing, and the way in which our community can come together to encourage and defend the potential of our youth.

Participating artists include: Emily Kray, Arthur “Artie” Richmond, Wes Lee, Teri-Ann Schwensow, Teal Francis, Megan Jewett, Anna Conti, Raymond Stewart, Matt McDowell, Erika Hopson-Lewis

Legendary Lands is on exhibit July 1 – August 2, 2019 with an opening reception on Friday, July 19 from 5-7pm. The Holland Project Satellite Gallery is located inside Cafe Capello (former Java Jungle) at 248 W 1st St. #202, Reno, NV.
