Kathie Olivas at AFA Las Vegas

Olivas-GraphicsIf your idea of a fantastic Thanksgiving dinner is an opulent Las Vegas buffet, then you’re in luck! Opening Thanksgiving weekend in Las Vegas, Kathie Olivas’ “Before Midnight” promises to be a beautiful and bedazzled look into Kathie’s off kilter world.



Imaginary friends take form and narrate their own fleeting moments in a new series of surreal portraits by contemporary artist Kathie Olivas. The Artist will unveil her newest collection, entitled “Before Midnight”, at AFA of Las Vegas on November 30th. The new exhibition includes original paintings and sculpture, inspired by early American portraiture that often depicted children as small adults in an idealized new land. The characters parallel this vision within their own sense of post-apocalyptic conformity, uniquely documenting their own stories in a mysterious brave new world. Before the shadows escape into the night, impractical dreamers take part in a world only discovered by their own imaginations. Before the stroke of midnight, the alter egos and spirit guides become intertwined as high spirits for lonely misfits.
