Concurrently, in the Ted & Gloria Maloof Gallery, APG presents Sweet Dreams and Nightmares, a solo exhibition of new work by artist Rose Barron. Creating her own tableaus inspired by historic paintings and literary references, Barron presents women in scenes that defy our expectations about gender, age and sexuality. Barron’s tableaus flaunt a contemporary desire for lush excesses alongside ancient themes found in folklore and mythology, such as love, betrayal and salvation.
