Filling a space in a beautiful way – that is what art means to me.
Candida Webb grew up in Reno, NV, as a third generation Nevadan, and has always been an explorer of the basin and range. She shares her depictions of beautiful, remote, and iconic places through saturated and expressionistic landscape oil paintings. Starting with numerous phone photos for reference, she builds her paintings layer by layer, focusing on light, color, patterns, and texture. She has taught various art disciplines through the Nevada Museum of Art, Very Special Arts-NV, Wilbur D. May Museum, public and private school programs, most recently in the Tahoe region with Arts for the Schools, located in Truckee California. She has facilitated workshops through Nevada Basin to Range Exchange sponsored by the Nevada Arts Council, and a weeklong painting workshop in Yosemite Valley with the Yosemite Conservancy. She was honored to be the 2021 Artist-in-Residence at Great Basin National Park, and was recently a featured artist in the 2022 summer edition of Tahoe Quarterly
Selected exhibits include Friends of Nevada Wilderness, Nevada Artist Association Gallery, numerous Washoe County libraries, art doors sponsored by Doors to Recovery, North Tahoe Arts, Bristlecone Gallery at Western Nevada College, Nevada Fine Arts, CCAI Courthouse Gallery, Bob Cowell Gallery, and the Yosemite Museum Gallery traveling group exhibit-Yosemite Renaissance 34. Her painting, Juxtaposition, was selected by Nv Humanities for their 2020 Nevada Day card, distributed throughout the state of Nevada. Her work can be seen at www.candidawebb.com.
