The Last Picture Show: Paintings by Rod Penner
June 3, 2023 - August 13, 2023Dow Gallery
This exhibition presents a selection of paintings by the photorealist painter Rod Penner. A Canadianborn, Texas-based artist, Penner’s work captures the visual dichotomy of forgotten towns in southwest America. Painted in excruciating detail using a small paintbrush, he renders each paint-chipped facade, pavement crack, and aged sign in precise detail. The artworks in this exhibition present a cinematic-like view that explores the desolation and serenity of rural Texas and New Mexico.
