Emma Auriemma-McKay - Moments in Nature
March 30 - May 8, 2015
Receptions: April 2 and May 7, 2015 5:00-7:00 pm
Metro Gallery in City Hall hosts new landscape painting by Emma Auriemma-McKay. Moments in Nature showcases the majesty and grandeur of the Sierra Nevada under the kaleidoscopic skies of western Nevada. The vast physical beauty of the basin and range landscapes coupled with the broad and extensive sky has been the spark of inspiration for this body of work.
“Landscapes can reflect a wide spectrum of postures, expressions and emotions. Ever-changing combinations of seasons, light quality or time of day brings constant change, life and personality to a scene. My goal is to capture those “Moments in Nature” that are inspiring.” – Emma Auriemma-McKay
