Nevada Art Museum: Galen Brown

Be sure to check out the exhibit, Sine Cere, by Galen Brown before it leaves on January fifth! As the Nevada Art Museum describes it,
"“Sincere,” first recorded in English in the 1530s, is from the Latin word sincerus, meaning “clean, pure, sound, etc.,” according to the Oxford English Dictionary. Born 1959 in Reno, artist Galen Brown creates work in drawing, printmaking, mixed media sculpture, and photography that embodies the adjective and resonates with intelligence and formal beauty.
