Meet the Artists: Exhibition Reception

  • Wiegand Gallery, Western Folklife Center 501 Railroad Street Elko, NV, 89801 United States (map)

Along with this month's downtown Elko Wine Walk, plan to spend extra time sipping wine at the Western Folklife Center as we celebrate the two exhibitions in our Wiegand Gallery. From 4 to 6 pm, internationally-known Tuscarora ceramist Dennis Parks and son Ben Parks will be on hand to talk to visitors of Dennis Parks: Land, Language and Clay, and author and former Western Folklife Center executive director Charlie Seemann will be celebrating his new book and companion exhibition, Way Out West: Images of the American Ranch, Photographs From the Farm Security Administration, 1936-1943. Both Seemann and Parks will be pleased to sign their books, now available in our Gift Shop. Light refreshments will be served and the Pioneer Bar will be open.
