Bryan Wheeler's 'Slinger: Gallery Talk

Join LHUCA and the artist for a conversation about Bryan Wheeler’s ‘Slinger, an exhibition of recent large-scale paintings and digital collages. Wheeler will discuss his “adaptation” of Ed Dorn’s Gunslinger, an anti-epic, comic poem composed between 1968 and 1975. The artist will address Dorn’s idiosyncratic word-play and humorous take on very serious issues in his faux-Western poem as well as his process in constructing the paintings and prints included here, before answering any and all questions.

Put a Lid On It: Thinking Inside, Outside, and Around the Box Clay Workshop
Apr
16
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.

Workshop taught by Susan Bergman

The Life and Art of Maya Lin with Christian Conrad

Maya Lin (born October 5, 1959)

Best known for her design of the Vietnam Memorial in Washington D.C., Maya Lin has created architecture and sculpture since the 1980s. With the majority of her work being large-scale environmental pieces, Lin creates art with a strong concern for space. Considering herself a designer, Lin’s art often blurs the line between architecture and installation art practice.

Lin has received multiple awards, most notably the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2009.

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 Henri Rousseau with Christian Conrad

Henri Rousseau (May 21, 1844 – September 2, 1910)

Emerging from the same time period as the Cubists in France, Rousseau strove to create his own version of art. Although he didn’t start painting until his forties, he created a body of work that is still relished for its originality. His paintings featured lush forest scenes, along with paintings using figures with a folk style, which was unique for the time. Considered a precursor to Surrealist art, Rousseau’s art was a hallmark for many of the future art movements.

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.

LHUCA Literary Series

LHUCA Literary Series

We hope you will join us for the first LHUCA Literary Series of the semester, featuring visiting writer Diana Khoi Nguyen. Texas Tech students - undergraduate Hali Cardenas and MA student William Brown - will also read from their work. The evening will be a celebration and discussion of literature as a force for social change, an effort toward building up language and encouraging writers and non-writers alike to rally for a world full of generosity and connection. As George Orwell famously put it, “One ought to recognize that present political chaos is connected with the decay of language.”

Diana Khoi Nguyen’s debut collection, Ghost Of (Omnidawn, 2018), was selected by Terrance Hayes for the Omnidawn Open Contest. She is a poet and multimedia artist whose work has appeared in Poetry, American Poetry Review, Boston Review, and PEN America, among others. In addition to winning the 92Y "Discovery" / Boston Review Poetry Contest, she has been shortlisted for the National Book Award, and has received awards and scholarships from the Academy of American Poets, Bread Loaf Writers Conference, Sewanee Writers’ Conference, and Provincetown Fine Arts Work Center. Currently, she lives in Denver where she is a PhD candidate in creative writing and teaches in the Daniels College of Business at the University of Denver. www.dianakhoinguyen.com

William Brown is in the final semester of his master's degree in poetry at Texas Tech and plans to earn an MFA and PhD afterward. His poems have appeared or are forthcoming in Copper Nickel, Crab Creek Review, McNeese Review, and elsewhere.

Hali Salome Cardenas is a West Texas native. She is currently pursuing a bachelor’s in creative writing at Texas Tech University. She is the recipient of the 2018 Stephan Ross Huffman Poetry Award. She spends much of her time reading with her toddler and their cat.

The Life and Art of Susan Rothenberg and Joan Mitchell with Christian Conrad

Susan Rothenberg and Joan Mitchell are two Abstract Expressionist artists whose work extends the vocabulary of painting. Joan Mitchell created paintings using raw marks to produce canvases that were highly energetic and colorful. Considered one of the key figures of modern American painting, Mitchell’s work has been widely collected by major museums. Susan Rothenberg works with the legacy of Abstract Expressionism, but she moved the subject matter toward recognizable forms within her paintings. Famous for representations of horses within her art, Rothenberg continues to create work with identifiable forms blending with more abstract painting.

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.
