Abstract Nature

On March 5, the Southern Nevada Museum of Fine Art will present Forms Environmental, a collection of large-scale acrylic paintings by artist Marlene Tseng Yu. Although the museum’s location, on the second level of Neonopolis Complex, may scream “tourist attraction,” this nonprofit organization has been bringing fine art to locals since 2003. SNMFA features exhibits from local and international artists such as New York-based Yu, whose vibrant approach to capturing nature transports viewers to glaciers, rain forests and the mountains of her birthplace, Taiwan.
