A recent bachelor of fine arts graduate from UNLV, Brian Martinez set the goal at 19 to have a solo exhibit every year until the age of 30. INTERLUDE marks his 5th consecutive solo exhibit, and it finds the artist at a time of experimentation and exploration. Representing more of his own life experiences is especially important to the artist in this exhibit. In keeping with that intent, Martinez has set out to incorporate more “brown” in his work, meaning not just the color, but also of the people—especially Chicano culture.
Stories Without Words represents 15 years of art produced by Las Vegas painter and illustrator Joseph Watson. Influenced by his observations, Watson’s artwork contains underlying stories based on the celebrations and challenges of life. The artist’s signature “urban-style” paintings are equal parts grit and whimsy, usually offering hope and inspiration.
