“Two or Three Things I Know About 12 Artists”

From “Life in the Time of Covid-19“ 

Artist and UNLV professor Pasha Rafat brings together other artists for a contemporary, abstract-sculpture group exhibit.

I have worked closely with the artists in this exhibition. Most are former Master of Fine Arts students from the UNLV studio art program and all have a diverse approach to contemporary practice.  A few of the participating artists are working in traditional painting, design and fiber, some with interest in digital and time-based imagery, and others have interest in sculpture in an expanded field.  I was curious to see, while organizing the exhibit, how the ideas/objects would come together and hope for further conversations to take place amongst the artists and the Las Vegas community.

Participating artists:
Nima Abkenar
Ali Fathollahi
Scott Grow
Christopher Jones
Maureen Halligan
Brian Henry
Jennifer Henry
Homero Hidalgo
Holly Lay
Cory McMahon
Lisa Rock
Nanda Sharif-pour

More: In addition to providing a daily view capturing the people, pets, interiors, urban landscapes and entertainment, social and news events of Las Vegas and the Valley, we also see The Daily Frame as a postcard to the future for scholars and visitors in the years ahead. With the launch of “Life in the Time of Covid-19“ series we document these uncertain times as people, businesses, institutions and government navigate uncharted waters.

We welcome your photographic views and thoughts and encourage you as always to contribute to this project.

In these strangest of days of that include the devastating Covid-19 pandemic – linked collapse of the local economy and the tragic murder of George Floyd and many others, we wish all health and well-being to those sheltered at home. And we extend our heartfelt thanks and gratitude to  the Valley’s doctors, nurses and medical staff, and to all essential workers.

Take care. Be safe. Be present. And don’t forget to wear a mask and social distance. We can all help save lives.
