Rebecca Pugh’s "Perimeters" merges landscape painting and sculpture through the use of unconventional techniques, materials, and formats. The artwork will be on view from September 21 through November 13 at the Clark County Government Center Rotunda Gallery, 550 S. Grand Central Parkway. A reception will be held opening night from 6 to 8 p.m. on Monday, September 21, with an artist talk at 6:30 p.m.

"Perimeters" is an exhibit of 5 large three-dimensional objects made of wood and mixed media, situated at the center of the Rotunda Gallery. To create the artworks, Pugh built wooden structures that are painted with colors sourced from found fabrics that she associates with the desert landscape. The wooden structures are bound with strips of fabric, suggesting atmospheric strata. The artist states, "My artworks do not necessarily reference actual sites, rather memories of embodied experiences with the landscape shaped by my ideas and thoughts about the geographic location." The artworks have an immediate relationship in scale to the viewer and encourage a mediation of interior vs. exterior spaces.
