Foyer Gallery Artist Reception

LTCC student Guy Gilmore brings his intriguing animal sculptures to the Foyer Gallery in his new show, "The American Dream," opening with an artist reception on Thursday Oct. 11 from 5pm-7pm in the Fine Arts building. This is a free event, and light refreshments will be served.

Gilmore has been sculpting for the past six years. He mostly sculpts various animals using bronze and clay to symbolize messages he’s trying to convey. As a recovering addict, Gilmore gets his inspiration by offering insight and understanding into drug addiction and the effects it has on individual lives and on society. “There is such a negative stigma associated with people who suffer from this deadly disease,” said Gilmore. “I am hoping to change the common misconceptions people have about addicts.”

To further advance his recovery, Gilmore has recently started to focus his work on other topics, such as government corruption, police brutality, animal cruelty, and other issues he is passionate about. “Sculpture is my way of standing up and speaking out for change and awareness,” said Gilmore.

Two other art exhibit openings will also take place on Thurs. Oct. 11 from 5pm-7pm. In the Haldan Art Gallery (library building) will be Reno ceramicist Joe Winter's "Pyrotechniques." Winter will host a free artist talk in the Haldan at 5:30pm. And in the Main Building will be a Student Art Show highlighting prize-winning art from the Spring quarter's annual Student Art Show, along with a few new pieces created by the winners.
