Kathleen Herlihy-Paoli: Act Three

KATHLEEN HERLIHY-PAOLI: ACT THREE, sponsored by the Missoula Art Museum, is an exhibition of new work by Missoula artist Kathleen Herlihy-Paoli. These paintings express her growing concerns and anxieties about water and fire in the West. These paintings are an extension of Herlihy-Paoli’s series of theater curtain paintings. Many of these paintings include objects such as buttons or beads that are hand-stitched onto the canvas as embellishments. In this series, Herlihy-Paoli reacts to personal, political, and world events using the frame of the theatrical stage as a vehicle to call attention and reflect truths about our culture and our lives, as a mirror which she hopes “allows us to see ourselves and our society more clearly.”
