3rd Annual “Use Other Door” Exhibition
August 11, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 12:00 pm on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until August 14, 2021
From June 19 to August 14, 2021, Core Contemporary Gallery hosts its 3rd annual national juried art exhibition, “Use Other Door”. This new exhibition is a judged collection of contemporary art submitted by talented artists from across the country. The exhibit is free and open to the public Wednesdays through Saturdays, from 12 p.m. – 4 p.m. The gallery will be hosting several in-person and online events, including the opening reception on June 19th, 1-3pm, release of a virtual art tour and artists’ talks, along with a closing reception to be held Saturday, August 14th, 1-3pm.
“Use Other Door” invited artists to submit contemporary work that represented their interpretation of what their “other door” might be. As the call description stated, this “other door” might be something as literal as choosing between two or more physical doors to gain access to something. Or, it could represent something intangible, such as a missed opportunity, conquering a fear, pursuing a dream or abandoning a goal.
“’Use Other Door’ provides an opportunity for artists to approach their creative techniques and mediums in a way that maybe they haven’t in the past,” said Nancy Good, juror, professional artist, and owner of Core Contemporary. “As a juror and the creator of this annual show, I was pleased to see the varied submissions to this third incarnation, from talented beginners to established professional artists with MFAs.”
Joining Good as juror was Las Vegas artist, Stormi Holt, a past participant in “Use Other Door.” Holt’s work explores dream-like states of awareness, primal influences within our human behaviors, and escapism.
Selected from close to 100 separate submissions, “Use Other Door” is a vibrant, dynamic and expressive exhibition featuring sculpture, photography, assemblage, painting, and mixed-media by 26 artists from around the country. Participating artists: Anna Arphan (Nevada), Brandin Barón (California), Zoe Camper (Nevada), Daniella Courban (Nevada), James deBeaumont (Pennsylvania), Crystal DiPietro (Nevada), Mavis Figuls (California), Robert Fogel (Louisiana), Christopher Fowler (Maryland), Glynn Galloway (Nevada), Kim Johnson (Nevada), Tracy Kerdman (Nevada), Neil Kesterson (Nevada), Eugene Lang (Nevada), John Manno (New York), Danielle Muzina (Kentucky), Elee Oak (Nevada), Jessica Rios (Nevada), Shawanda Schiefer (Nevada), Linda Shaffer (Nevada), Leon Syfrit (Nevada), Tom Umholtz (Nevada), Vanessa VanAlstyne (Nevada), Claire Wentzel (Nevada), Jamie Zepeda (Nevada), and Diane Zizka (Nevada).
