The Capital City Arts Initiative [CCAI] presents its exhibition, Writing from Mars, by artist Rick Parsons at the CCAI Courthouse Gallery. 

The exhibit will be in the gallery from February 2 through May 23, 2018. The gallery is open to the public Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Parsons’ current work has been exploring automatic writing, jazz thinking, and three-dimensional forms, while also addressing the environment. 
Parsons said, “My ultimate goal as an artist and educator is to create art and environments that generate questioning and discovery, for within this framework of learning and expression, a shift in perception can take place, and a new understanding of life can be revealed.” Parsons has been teaching at Sierra Nevada College for eight years and was named the 2012/2013 Faculty Member of the Year by the SNC student body and was awarded the Nazir and Mary Ansari 2014/2015 Excellence in Teaching Gold Metal Award. He has also served as Sculpture Program Coordinator at Anderson Ranch Arts Center and has taught at both the University of Dallas, and Colorado Mountain College.

Artist and writer Chris Lanier has written the exhibition essay for Writing from Mars. 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.
