CARSON CITY ARTIST CYNTHIA BRENNEMAN on display at Legislative Building

Carson City artist Cynthia Brenneman’s fascination with art started at a young age and has never wavered, even as she served her country in the U.S. Navy.

“My mother loved to sew,” Brenneman said. “One of my earliest memories was standing in my crib, holding an afghan of many colors that my mother had made. I don’t sew like my mother, but I love fabric. Fabrics creep into my paintings.”

This month, Brenneman’s exhibit, “The Fabric of Life,” will open the Nevada Arts Council’s Legislative eXhibition Series (LXS) inside the Nevada Legislative Building, and will be on displayed through Feb. 4-22. Read more
