The paintings of Robert Beckmann’s newest exhibition titled, “Transmutations: Robert Beckmann, Under the Western Sky, 1977 to 2017” knock you over with their imagery.
Nuclear clouds electrified. Robed figures against a dilapidated Las Vegas Strip. The broken bones of a house decimated by an atomic bomb. A brook in a forest disappears as you get closer.
The exhibition, now at the Sahara West Library, is a vast retrospective of his work that runs through March 18.

You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for. If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
