The City of Reno Public Art Program presents two art exhibits featuring abstract painting and atmospheric photography. Victoria Veedell’s Atmospheric Conditions will be displayed at the Metro Gallery, located on the first floor of Reno City Hall, 1 E. First Street. Amy Hunter’s Altered Abstraction will be displayed at the McKinley East Gallery, located in the McKinley Arts and Culture Center, 925 Riverside Drive. Admission to both exhibitions is free and hours are Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. They will be open to the public from January 23 through March 9, 2012.

Victoria Veedell is a full time painter living in San Francisco. She has been an artist in residence at the Vermont Studio Center, Johnson, VT, Kamiyama Artist in Residence, in Japan, and the Chitraniketan Residency, India. Her paintings have been exhibited nationally and internationally in galleries and art centers.

Amy Hunter’s unique work is inspired by little everyday things that stir the imagination. She recently graduated from the Cain College of the Arts in Logan, UT, where she received a Bachelors degree of Fine Arts with an emphasis in photography.

The City of Reno exhibits a variety of artwork to provide the community with a stimulating and educational experience. Exhibitions are supported, in part, by the Nevada Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts.
