Mad Housewife: Paintings by Leslie DuPratt

Mad Housewife:  Paintings by Leslie DuPratt

January 8 – February 16, 2014

Reception:  Friday, January 10th, 6-9 PM

Leslie DuPratt’s narrative paintings of women involved in household tasks take as their subject her own self, albeit dressed in various guises.  She endows her scenes with humor, adding details that invite laughter and a deeper understanding of the delicate nature of women’s roles.  Equally provocative are her still life works, composed of objects meant to enhance female beauty, such as jewelry, cosmetics, and heels.    


Currently living and working in Davis, DuPratt’s early years spent working in the fashion industry in Los Angeles and modeling in Rome inspired the ideas for her socially satirical paintings. 


2nd Friday ArtAbout Reception:  Please visit on Friday, January 10th from 6-9 PM for an opening reception to meet the artist and view the exhibit.   FREE.


Artist Talk: Friday, January 24, 7- 8 PM.  FREE.

Join Leslie as she discusses her new series of large-scale paintings, which use her own image and possessions as larger metaphors for women’s role in today’s world.


This exhibit is sponsored by Tom Doyle and Kathy Joseph.
