Casey Weldon Brings Solo Art Exhibit to Las Vegas

Casey Weldon brings his second solo exhibit in two years to the Trifecta Gallery in the Arts Factory, 107 E. Charleston Blvd., in Las Vegas now through October 30.   CaseyWeldon

The exhibit entitled, “Becomings and Goings,” continues Weldon’s social commentary.  However this series appears to have a dejected quality beyond what was in his past works. 

In “Lazy Daze”, two young girls sit side by side cradling a Lazy Daze RV in their arms.  From the despondent frowns on their faces to the bare trees in the background, you are left with the distinctly sorrowful knowledge that their holiday or summer has come to a close.    For this particular image, Weldon drew on the memory of girls he met during a camping trip when he was a boy.  It was both a time to celebrate and a sad close to the holiday. 

According to Weldon, “My previous paintings have one-liners or a joke or a punch line. I’m not trying to get rid of that, but I wanted to have a more serious tone. There is an innocence lost. I have friends and family who are having children. Some are dying. It seemed the best way for me to depict the cycle of life.” 

Admission is free.  Call 702-366-7001 for the viewing schedule.
