This two person painting exhibit features a selection of portraits and figurative works by Kim Alsbrooks and Helen Mirkil. Alsbrooks explores historic imagery, social class, and consumer culture with “My White Trash Family”- detailed portraits on flattened beverage cans and other recycled packages. Mirkil’s gestural paintings trace a visual lineage from portraits of Vincent Van Gogh, Edgar Degas, and other late 19th Century European masters.
