Arroyo in Miniature

Mary-Austin Klein(aka half of Echo Two Niner) is having an opening this Saturday, April 1st at Bliss Gallery in Pasadena. “The Arroyo in Miniature, Memento Paintings to Treasure”:

Featured in this solo show of most recent works by Mary-Austin Klein are small-scaled (2 x 3 inches) oil paintings of views along the Arroyo Seco. Delicate concrete bridges, homes clutching the crumbly hillsides and the immense wall of the San Gabriel Mountains come together to make a show depicting a utopian vision and a consciousness of denial that exists in southern California. Living in a region with geological forces that can change the landscape in a moment’s notice, these paintings are to be future mementos to remind one of what once was.
