Photos by Heather Protz

through May 8
M – F 8 a.m. -5 p.m.

"... a series of photographs by Las Vegas artist, Heather Protz whose photographic background began with black and white, silver gelatin printing. From there, her passion became Xerox and Polaroid which led her to the digital frontiers of today.

Protz believes, “When great photographs speak – they speak to the viewer. This is what drives me to create work. The movement of humans, animals, machinery, air and clouds is the basis of my work. Images of parking lots, landscapes, skyscrapers, cityscapes, planes, trains, snakes and birds are composited into one canvas. Together these elements represent my daily observations.”
