Art Lectures with Dr. Conrad: Wayne Thiebaud

Wayne Thiebaud (born November 15, 1920)

Best known for his images of food, Wayne Thiebaud’s paintings usually focused on single objects often found in everyday life. While the majority of American Pop artists came from New York, Thiebaud worked primarily in California, creating art that stands apart from the other artists of his time. In his later career Thiebaud would expand to include a diversity of subject matters, including landscapes and portraiture, all created in his unique style. Join us as we examine the work Thiebaud and compare it to that of other Pop artists from the same 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.

KTTZ-TV Movie Screening: Minor Injustice

Attend this movie screening and hear the announcement of the 2019 Flatland Film Festival films!

Texas is now one of only 3 states that charges 17 year olds as adults. During the 2017 legislative session there were two bills being introduced that addressed this issue. One to raise the age of adult prosecution from 17 to 18, and the other would allow people currently in prison for a crime committed before the age of 18 a chance at early parole. Right now Texas sentencing laws ignore recent scientific evidence on adolescent development and neuroscience, and the state’s current parole system provides no viable mechanism for reviewing a case after a young person has grown up and matured. Can we morally keep sending our youth to adult prisons?

Art Lectures with Dr. Conrad: Philip Guston

Philip Guston (June 27, 1913 – June 7, 1980)

Emerging from the New York School of Abstraction, Guston’s art showed the transition from Abstract Expressionism into more realistic forms of subject painting. Creating his own style of realism that uses a cartoonish style of figures, Guston’s images were also biographic, with many focusing on the artist’s own life. Guston’s work has been seen as a bridge between the non-objective art of the 1950s and the object-fixated ideas of Pop art that would follow.

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.

Art Lectures with Dr. Conrad: Grandma Moses and Grandma Layton

This lecture will focus two twentieth-century American women who began their art careers later in their lives. Anna Moses, also known as Grandma Moses, began painting at the age of 78, and her paintings have become synonymous with the folk-art style in America. Achieving fame during her lifetime, Grandma Moses’s art was published in multiple magazines: her paintings adorn postage stamps and are featured in the collection of the White House. Elizabeth Layton, also known as Grandma Layton, began her art career at age 68, when she took a drawing class. Grandma Layton’s unique drawings have been widely collected in her native Kansas and also nationwide with pieces owned by the Smithsonian American Art Museum. Join us as we explore the life and work of these two American women artists.

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.

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.
