Use Other Door invited artists to submit contemporary work that represented their
interpretation of what their “other door” might be. As the call description stated, this
“other door” might be something as literal as choosing between two or more physical
doors to gain access to something. Or, it could represent something intangible, such as a
missed opportunity, conquering a fear, pursuing a dream or abandoning a goal.
“Use Other Door provides an opportunity for artists to approach their creative
techniques and mediums in a way that maybe they haven't in the past,” said Nancy
Good, juror, professional artist, and owner of Core Contemporary. “As a juror and the
creator of this annual show, I was pleased to see the varied submissions to this fourth
incarnation, from talented beginners to established professional artists with MFAs.”
Joining Good as juror was Las Vegas visual and performance artist, Clarice Tara Cuda.
Cuda's own work explores themes quite similar to that of this exhibition.
Selected from close to 100 separate submissions, Use Other Door is a vibrant, dynamic
and expressive exhibition featuring sculpture, photography, assemblage, painting, and
mixed-media by 25 artists from around the country. Participating artists: Brandin Baron
(California), Dan Brady (Nevada), Nichole Cochener (Nevada), Lisa Dittrich (Nevada),
Christopher Fowler (Maryland), Mark Kaufman (Nevada), Neil Kesterson (Nevada), Karen
Lopez (Nevada), Jean Manley (Nevada), Sofia Moore (Nevada), Erika Muecke (Nevada),
