Leaving Home

Longtime Las Vegas artist and UNLV prof Mary Warner may be moving to Sacramento, Calif., but she’s leaving with a serious bang. Coming off the strength of last month’s vibrant, botanical-themed Heavy Petal show at Trifecta Gallery, Warner weighs in on the housing bust with new works in Dreamhouse, a group exhibit that also features artist Mark Brandvik and sculptor Emily Kennerk. Warner’s untitled painting of a castle built upon a detached cliff (pictured) will stir your imagination even as it reminds you that domestic structures are undeniably alluring, that their idealization is never easy to shrug off. This might be a last chance to see a local show involving Warner, who for years played a significant role in constructing the arts in Las Vegas.

Assessment: This joint should, can and hopefully will jump. Five chandeliers sparkling above declare it in style. Experiencing America’s native music in the Cabaret Jazz room at The Smith Center for the Performing Arts was encouraging when it opened March 17, even if the featured opener, the SFJAZZ Collective, was too cerebral to kick-start this cozy jewel with any verve.
