The Life and Art of Chuck Close with Christian Conrad

Chuck Close (1940- ) and others:
This August, Saturdays at LHUCA will focus on modern interpretations of the human figure, beginning with a look at the close-up paintings of Chuck Close. An artist typically associated with photo-realism, Close developed a system to translate photos into large scale paintings. At this larger size, the art reveals an overly detailed view of the face as the composition.  Following a tragic accident in 1988, Close began to change his method, creating images that were abstract in nature but continuing to use the face as a departure point. This lecture will also examine other artists, such as Gerhard Richter, who also use realism in association with the figure.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 Lucian Freud with Christian Conrad

Lucian Freud (1922-2011):
Considered one of the most important individuals in modern figure study, British artist Lucian Freud created realistic paintings that had thick textured surfaces. A deeply private individual, Freud mostly painted his friends and often their pets, but reached a level of notoriety to be considered one of the most influential British artists. Although famous for his realism, Freud’s early work is characterized by abstraction and surrealism. Join us as we journey through Freud’s work as he moves from an avant-garde style to the realistic paintings for which he was made famous.

A History of Comics with Rob Weiner

The history of comics is fraught with historical controversy. For nearly a century comics gained little respect both with the general public and in academic circles. Comics were once thought of as the worst literary form of trash that could turn one’s brain into mush (especially young children). In fact, during the 1950s Comics were thought to corrupt the youth of America so much so that the Senate held hearings on the evils and dangers of comics. However, the past thirty years have seen the status of comics also known as sequential art rise. There are now comics for nearly ever topic imaginable from the superhero stories to historical and scientific textbooks done in the format. The rise of Comics Studies in Universities is one of example of comics finally being given their due as cultural artifacts. This presentation will briefly cover some of the important moments in the history of comics and look at the art and artists associated.

Julie Speed: Gallery Talk

Julie Speed: Gallery Talk

Julie Speed is a painter, sculptor, collage artist, and printmaker who has been exhibiting for more than thirty years.

In her series “Undertoad,” Julie continues her unique art of storytelling through images that range in culture from archaic copies of Gray’s Anatomy to nineteenth-century Japanese woodblock prints on Mulberry wood paper. She then continues to work the images using gouache, an opaque watercolor paint, to add new elements and also repair the collaged images that might be damaged. Julie’s mastery of the materials makes the pieces of work effortlessly fit together, with the distinction between the two materials used being almost unrecognizable.  

She chooses to use found elements as they are, with little manipulation. 

“The rules to my game are that I’m not allowed to take apart any good books, use any internet-sourced material or my scanner and printer to blow anything up or down, so I buy what I can find at flea markets, eBay, and junk stores. Sometimes I find things while I’m out walking.” 

Julie works out of a studio in Marfa, Texas.

The Life and Art of Johannes Vermeer with Christian Conrad

Johannes Vermeer (October 1632 – December 1675)
Considered one of the great artists of the Golden Age of Dutch painting, Vermeer’s name stands out as one of the most recognizable in Western Art. However, much of Vermeer’s life remains a mystery with very little biographic information uncovered: to this day, only 34 works have been attributed to the artist. Vermeer’s works continues to be highly studied, with newer theories embracing the possible use of scientific-based instruments of the time in the construction of the work. Join us as we examine the life of Vermeer along with the artists who were around him during the middle of the seventeenth century.

The Life and Art of Pieter Bruegel with Christian Conrad

Pieter Bruegel (c. 1525-1530 – 9 September 1569)
While the Renaissance was occurring in Italy with such famous artists as Leonardo and Raphael, a different artistic awakening was occurring in Northern Europe led by innovative artists such as Pieter Bruegel the Elder. While the focus in Italy was primarily on religious works, the Netherlands and other northern locations favored secular images that often presented morals or ideas of the time through the art. Bruegel, who was considered the master of this period, used peasants as his primary source of inspiration, chronicling their lives and customs in his work. In addition to his own art, Pieter Bruegel is seen as beginning an age of painting, found not only in other artists but also in his two sons.

The Life and Art of Wassily Kandinsky with Christian Conrad

Wassily Kandinsky (1866-1944): One of the most important art theorists of the past century, Wassily Kandinsky sought to develop a scientific system of how colors and forms effect human emotions. Famous for his text “Concerning the Spiritual in Art”, Kandinsky created the first non-objective paintings that rely solely on the composition’s formal aspects, such as lines and shapes. Join us as we examine Kandinsky’s life and art and begin to unravel the complicated world of non-representational art.

Dad's turn to tell his three rambunctious kids their bedtime stories, but when he gets fuzzy on the details, the classics get creative: a prince with a snoring problem spices up The Princess and The Pea, The Boy Who Cried Wolf cries dinosaur instead, and Rumpelstiltskin helps turn all that pesky gold into straw.

The Life and Art of Paul Cézanne with Christian Conrad

The Life and Art of Paul Cézanne with Christian Conrad

Paul Cézanne (1839-1906): An artist whose work many historians consider as the beginning of modern art, Paul Cézanne redefined how compositions are structured in painting. His work in both still life and landscape radically shifted away from simple representation of a scene into a complex construction. Bridging the gap between Impressionism and Post Impressionism, Cézanne’s painting style would anticipate the Cubist revolution that would occur at the beginning of the twentieth century. Although Cézanne was associated with several art movements, he worked in near isolation, painting scenes close to his home in Provence, France.

Frederic Remington (1861-1909): An artist synonymous with the American West, Remington’s art portrayed the world of the frontier at the turn of the century. He created some of the most iconic images of the West in the medias of both painting and sculpture. Spending many years in New York City, Remington’s images informed many Americans’ perception of what the frontier looked like through his illustrations for Harper’s Weekly. Remington’s rise in popularity included a friendship with then President Theodore Roosevelt.

The Life and Art of Thomas Hart Benton with Christian Conrad

Thomas Hart Benton (1889-1975): One of this country’s best known Muralists, Thomas Hart Benton created images that spoke directly to an American audience. His work focused on images of the Midwest, showing scenes of rural farmers and small-town life. Associated with the Regionalism art period, Benton created images in his own style, full of figures and narratives that swirl into one another. Dedicated to showing the truth of situations, Benton’s art was controversial for the depiction of some images. In addition to creating his own vivid paintings, Benton was responsible for teaching many of America’s premiere artists.

Viernes, 7 de abril de 7:30pm – 9:00pm

¡Tex-Mex se mezcla con Honky Tonk, al acordeón se le une la guitarra de cuerdas de acero y la mezcla es explosiva! “Esto pasa cuando a la madre le encanta George Jones y al padre le encanta Freddy Fender,” dice Dave Perez, acordeonista de la banda. Con las influencias de muchos tipos de música diferentes, a la audiencia le costará poder describir su directo. La banda lo llama “Tex-Mex Honky-Tonk.” “Un medley típico de Tejas Brothers comienza con una polka tejana contundente, salta a un tema country con el ronroneo del motor de un tren, y después te dejan caer en un tema rock con twist y blues. Los Tejas Brothers son Dave Perez – Acordeón; John Garza – Bajo; James Shelton – Pedal de acero; y Tim Crispin – Batería.

The Life and Art of René Magritte with Christian Conrad

The Life and Art of René Magritte with Christian Conrad

René Magritte (1898-1967): A Belgian artist, Magritte is best known for his Surrealistic images that incorporate everyday objects. However, the evolution of his work begins much earlier with paintings rooted in Cubism and Expressionism. Join us as we examine how Magritte’s paintings changed over the artist’s career to become simplified dream states that focus on simple objects, paintings that many see as early examples of Pop 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.

This event is free to the public.

The Life and Art of Marc Chagall with Christian Conrad

Marc Chagall (1887-1985): A pioneering artist in the use of color, Chagall created images that continue to radiate into the contemporary. An immigrant to Paris, Chagall combined images from his Russian Jewish heritage with the contemporary modern styles of the Avante-Garde. Chagall’s life was constantly influenced by the politics of his time: he moved from Russia to Paris and eventually the United States as he narrowly escaped the Nazi war machine. In the post war years, Chagall continued to create art, including some of his best-known works made in stained glass.

The Life and Art of The Wyeth Family with Christian Conrad

The Wyeth Family:  Often thought of as the American art family, the Wyeths are a multigenerational group of artists.  Our discussion begins with N.C. Wyeth, a famous illustrator who constructed our modern interpretation of pirates, among other images. His children, led by Andrew Wyeth, each pursued a different direction in the arts. In addition, N.C. Wyeth’s daughters Henriette and Carolyn also painted in their own unique styles.  A third generation is found in Jamie Wyeth, who continues his father Andrew’s tradition of realistic painting.
