Embracing the area’s design and manufacturing community, the Capital City Arts Initiative [CCAI] announces its exhibition, Industrial Art: Sports Edition, at the CCAI Courthouse Gallery from June 9 - September 28, 2017. The exhibition is free and the public is cordially invited. The gallery is open to the public Monday – Friday, 8am – 5pm.

Industrial Art: Sports Edition features the design work of five northern Nevada sports equipment designers and manufacturers. The participating businesses include Aviso Surf/Solution Marine, Burns Machining/Dirt Tricks, Sports Attack, The Cable Connection, and UCS Spirit. Each of these companies manufacture products with innovative design that apply to an array of sports equipment. CCAI presents these products as items to be admired in their own right for their design, precision, and beauty.

Artist and writer Chris Lanier has written the exhibition essay for Industrial Art: Sports Edition. He has a background in both traditional and digital media, and has worked in multimedia performance, digital animation, web production, and comics. Mr. Lanier is also an essayist and critic whose art criticism has appeared in a variety of online and print publications. He is an Associate Professor of Digital Art at Sierra Nevada College, Incline Village, Nevada. Lanier earned his M.F.A. in Studio Art at the University of California, Davis in 2007 and his B.A. in Art and Society at the New College of California, San Francisco in 1994. He lives in Reno with his family.
