All Your Bus Are Belong 2 Us-my Art Exhibition, starts Feb. 1st

I was on the radio “Nevada Matters” with Eddie Floyd, the other day, talking about my own show at TMCC.

Next week I’ll be on KOLO TV 8, in Reno, talking to Amanda Sanchez the early broadcast which I think is around 6:15 am.

“Chad Sorg has been painting. He’s also been writing. Having recently moved to Goldfield, Nevada, he’s been painting erected cars and promoting the world’s newest roadside attraction. The relative solitude has given him time for oils and words, using an abandoned bus for a studio.”
I’ve got 10 oils to show plus writings since I’ve lived down here in Goldfield. Come see whatcha’ think!

Throughout rural Nevada, there are little oases of art worth visiting

We’ll be burning another one for the party, btw.

From Reno News & Review‘s
State of the arts 

“If we bury two more cars, we’ll have 40,” Chad Sorg announces proudly. The former Renoite is now president of the chamber of commerce in Goldfield, another former mining boomtown. He’s talking about the car forest, an art installation where he’s been helping long-time Goldfielder Mark Rippee plant cars nose-down in the ground.

The site, officially known as the International Car Forest of the Last Church, will be the grounds for Sorg’s End of the World Party, a homegrown music and art festival scheduled to coincide with the town’s annual Goldfield Days celebration. The lineup is still being finagled. The car forest is ungated and open to visitors year-round. Tickets to the End of the World Party, Aug. 18-19, are $25, which includes camping. To purchase, call the Goldfield Gift Shop, (775) 485-3700.
