Mack Nez Johnson, Jr.,: A Native Soul’s Retrospective at the Lake Mansion

posted: May 29

Artist’s Reception, July 31 from 4-6 PM

Exhibit July 1 – August 27, 2014

For Mack Nez Johnson, Jr., a gifted mouth painter, art is a way of life, a gift from his creator.    Art has always been a part of Mack Nez Johnson, Jr.’s life.  “With all the pain, anger and happiness in my life, I’m still able to express what I feel.”  After breaking his neck in a 1983 car accident in San Diego, making feeding and even breathing a challenge, art became the mechanism “to catch me on those days I slip and fall.”  Mack, of Shoshone-Navajo descent, is the featured artist in the “Art Access Gallery” at the Lake Mansion open Monday-Friday from 10 AM – 4 PM. Artist’s reception July 31 from 4 – 6 PM.

The Lake Mansion is located on the corner of Court Street and Arlington Ave. in Reno, one block south of the Truckee River.  Year-round the “Art Access Gallery” features art for sale created by 20 emerging and professional artists who have a disability.  There is no admission to the mansion or the gallery.
