Paintings by Chris McLaughlin
OPENING OCT. 6th 6-8pm
We will be hosting an opening reception for our new show of Chris McLaughlin's paintings during City-Wide Open Studio 2017's Westville weekend. This show will be up during regular gallery hours until November 4th. Gallery hours are 10-5 Wednesday-Saturday. These paintings focus on American noir film and our relationship with our own history. McLaughlin presents an intimate, distorted reality drawing on film tropes such as the shadows, blinds, cats, and mirrors, with references to social realist painters such as Edward Hopper. These paintings are juxtaposed with more whimsical, colorful works examining American culture, history, and religion.
