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.

PINK CENTER: I am faced with a dilemma. I want to check out The Smith Center for the Performing Arts, want to let my head swim in that ginormous cultural watershed … but at the same time, I don’t want my friends to think I’m any less committed to my mullet, my Hemi and my globe-spanning collection of shot glasses. Enter PFX: The Pink Floyd Experience, a Pink Floyd tribute show featuring six players you’ve never heard of and several truckloads of spotlights and lasers.
