Babineau draws from personal photographs and sense memory in these oil paintings about visceral response and the flux between pleasure and dystopia in the public spaces of Las Vegas. Glitzy kitsch, monumental architecture, and dazzling interiors contrast with the glare of economic disparity and desperation in this major tourist destination, a large American city in the desert.
Opening reception is Friday January 5 from 7-9pm. Exhibition runs Saturdays/Sundays through January 21 from 12-4pm. Mary will also be giving an artist talk on Saturday January 13th at 1:00 pm
