A bittersweet comedy about family and finding your way, TIGERS BE STILL previews on June 20, opens June 21, and runs through June 30, 2019, at the Firehouse Theatre at LHUCA. TIGERS BE STILL will be directed by Outpost Rep's associate artistic director Jesse Jou.

The Life and Art of Francis Bacon with Christian Conrad

Originally born in Dublin, Francis Bacon became famous as a preeminent artist in the post-World War II European world. Creating around 600 pieces of art, Bacon’s work exemplified many of the moods and ideas of the world of the 1950s and 1960s.  His large graphic abstract works often use nightmarish versions of reality, creating a sense of mystery and suspense within the viewer. Celebrated for his turbulent lifestyle, Francis Bacon is considered a quintessential artist of the postwar period.

Saturday Lectures at LHUCA is an informal conversation over the life and work of contemporary artists. It’s a stress-free opportunity to examine the art and ideas that underlie much of the modern art world. Attendees are encouraged to ask questions and join the conversation.

This event is free to the public.

The Life and Art of Nancy Holt with Christian Conrad

Nancy Holt (1938 – 2014)

Instrumental in the Land Art movement, Nancy Holt created a variety of art including large scale sculpture, installation, and film. With a focus on the concept of time many of Holt’s works function as contemplative pieces that change depending on the environmental conditions.  Often using astronomical phenomenon as a basis for exploration, Holt uses moments such as the summer and winter solstices within her work. Join us as we examine the life and work of an artist who is fundamental to the conversation of earth-based art.

Saturday Lectures at LHUCA is an informal conversation over the life and work of contemporary artists. It’s a stress-free opportunity to examine the art and ideas that underlie much of the modern art world. Attendees are encouraged to ask questions and join the conversation.

The Life and Art of Berthe Morisot with Christian Conrad

Berthe Morisot (1841 – 1895)

Berthe Morisot was a part of the Impressionist Art movement, working in France during the late nineteenth century. First selected for the Paris salon at the age of 23, Morisot began showing her work in the Second Impressionist exhibition in 1874. Working closely with the artists of the time, Morisot would marry Edouard Manet, brother of the famous artist. Morisot is a fundamental part of the Impressionist movement, is widely collected throughout the world, and is currently featured in a major exhibition at the Dallas Museum of Art.

Robert Ellis Patterson Student Art Award

Robert Ellis Patterson Student Art Award

Hope Sherman
Winner of the 4th Annual
Robert Ellis Patterson Student Art Award

“I have had a passion for the arts, especially character design and animation, since I was a tiny elementary school student. During my middle school days, I was heavily involved with mural art (I even designed and worked on the Buddy Holly and The Beatles mural right outside the Ice House!) but my desire to work in animation grew. When I don’t have mountains of homework, I design characters and worlds to incorporate in my work as well as to diversify my skills.

I also enjoy playing video games and Dungeons and Dragons, which definitely influences my work. One of my biggest inspirations is the manga artist, Junji Ito, and he inspires me to create pieces that would make people feel something besides “oh that’s neat”.

I am currently a 3rd year animation student at the Byron Martin Advanced Technology Center and I plan to attend the University of Texas at Dallas in the fall of 2019 majoring in Arts, Technology, and Emerging Communication with Animation.”

About the award:
Robert began his passion for the arts, both visual and performing, during his school years in Lubbock. Later, as a gallery owner and curator, he encouraged and promoted young and emerging artists. In memory of Robert Ellis Patterson, his friends and family have created this award to celebrate his life, love of the arts, and passion for helping young artists.

Put a Lid On It: Thinking Inside, Outside, and Around the Box Clay Workshop
Apr

to Apr 17

Put a Lid On It: Thinking Inside, Outside, and Around the Box Clay Workshop

In this two-day workshop we will consider the box as both a practical and a metaphorical container, exploring the multitudinous ways in which form, gesture, and surface decoration interact to produce a useful tool with a compelling narrative. Using building techniques from slabs and coils to bisque molds and extrusion, we’ll look at how to create strong seams, cut lids, plan for warping and shrinkage; how to incorporate drawers, doors, handles, and knobs; how to nest trays, cups, sculptures, or additional boxes inside the primary one; how to incorporate animal and botanical themes in both two and three dimensions; and how to apply slips and textures for cohesive design. By the end of the workshop students should have a few sturdy pieces ready for bisque ring. Some handbuilding experience is helpful but not necessary. Tools that will prove useful, if you have them: Exacto knife, rolling pin, sti and exible rubber ribs, smooth and serrated metal ribs, beveling wire, pin tool, brushes for slip application.
