The Wall Splotch Series

Lorna Nakell
God bless things American. Nakell deconstructs typically American objects--TV dinners, coffee pots, beauty lotions--by painting still-lifes of them in an almost-realistic, neo-kitsch style. Atlas Living, 1422 NE Alberta, 249-3890, Through Mar 24

MB Condon & Sarah Ross
