UNR at Lake Tahoe: Gallery Visiting Artist Roman de Salvo

We are so pleased to welcome this semester's Gallery Visiting Artist Roman de Salvo. Roman is a highly practiced and internationally exhibited artist, his work has been shown in the Whitney Biennial (2000), Musee d'Art American Giverny (2000), The Museum of Contemporary Art in San Diego (1998,2001,2006), The Orange County Art Museum (2002), The Seattle Art Museum (2003) and the Nevada Art Museum of Art (2004).

Director of the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, Hugh Davies describes the appeal of de Salvo's work:

"What always amazes me is Roman's inventiveness. Form and solution become indistinguishable. There's something peculiarly American about his art. He's a jack of all trades who relishes in the challenge to solve problems. You can't anticipate the next piece, but it always makes absolute sense. That's what keeps Roman's art so fresh."

Using ceramics, Roman is currently working on an exhibition about light, history and residue. He will be using the Garage Door Gallery as research and workspace for a month to produce an exhibition that will then be displayed in the gallery from Nov. 16, 2022-Jan. 3, 2023. The goal of this is to create a space for dialog and collaboration Both months are free and open to the public; stop by and say hello to Roman.

On Dec. 7, there will be a reception in the Garage Door Gallery at 5 p.m. with an artist talk at 5:30 p.m., on the 2nd floor of the Holman Arts and Media Center. The event is free and open to the public.
