Deborah Paswaters: Realm-Millennium

November 18, 1999 - January 2, 2000


On the heels of the Marc Chagall Exhibition, the best-attended show for the Las Vegas Art Museum to date, the museum is hosting the first one-person showing for Los Angeles contemporary artist Deborah Paswaters, entitled Realm-Millennium. The artist, whose style is considered abstract-figurative, employs all the developments of abstract artists like Mark Rothko and Willem De Kooning, as well as reincorporating imagery as in the later work of Jasper Johns, according to Las Vegas Art Museum Curator James Mann.

The exhibition has been culled from numerous collections across the world as well as new paintings and sculpture specifically created for this event. The artist has created an installation piece specifically for the museum, which will incorporate sound and different sight sensations in the side gallery. The Paswaters exhibition will begin with an opening reception on November 18 and will be the featured exhibition until January 2, 2000.

To celebrate this significant milestone in her career, Paswaters has invited the Las Vegas affiliate of the Susan G. Komen Foundation to share in this event along with singer/actress and breast cancer survivor Olivia Newton-John. To assist the organization with breast cancer awareness and fund-raising efforts, Paswaters has collaborated on a limited-edition poster with Newton-John that will be available during the event. The theme of the poster is "Art Is for Life," a painting created specifically by Paswaters to be sold the duration of the exhibit with all proceeds benefiting the Las Vegas affiliate of the Komen Foundation.
