Building Materials II features sculptural reliefs of wood and other found objects by Reno artist Anthony Arevalo, March 16 –April 3, 2015. For nearly a decade, Arevalo has collected items from alleyways or dumpsters that pique his visual interests. "While the previous life of these objects may be apparent in their surface or their shape, I'm not interested in what they were so much as what they have become and, more importantly, what they could be." The LXS Gallery is located on the first floor across from the Caucus Deli in the Legislative Building, 401 South Carson Street, Carson City. Read More
