The Eureka Courthouse Gallery Hall
The Eureka Court House Gallery Hall is a hall on the South side of the Eureka County Court House
in Eureka. The hall was created as a result of rennovations to the courthouse and is now being used as an art space. Traveling art shows
are hung in this gallery for varying periods of time. We invite you to come enjoy the exhibits as they travel through the historic courthouse.
We are also in the process of assembling a permanent Courthouse Collection.

Still Here Now: The poetry of the Nevada landscape - with its deserts and mountain ranges, hidden hot springs, and alpine lakes - has inspired artists to paint, draw, and photograph the
many nuances of this remote place. Indeed, illustrating the land, and its flora and fauna, has been a main interest for artists in Nevada for generations. Still Here Now features the works
of a selection of 2010-2014 recipients of the Nevada Arts Council's Artist Fellowship program and the selected works reflect the deep breadth of artistic expertise supported by the Nevada Arts Council's
fellowship grants. The pieces in this show often reference or portray landscape and place, but their stories do not reside there. Beyond the depiction of land and nature, the presence of people is
paramount. Bodies, psyches, and emotional connections inhabit the forefront of examination for the artists. The experience of landscape is only as important as our own fixed experience in space;
these eight artists reflect on notions of rootedness, permanence, anxiety, and survival in their work.

Hands, bodies, and faces permeate the pieces in this show, never entirely abstracted, yet never completely revealed. Each artist demonstrates a commitment to the investigation of a given medium,
be it textile, paint, wood, or found objects, as their work presents a perspective on the psyche and anxiety of being human. Still Here Now provokes thought on art, our bodies, and the
environment, and our uneasy place with this paradigm.
