Jackie Gendel "The Carried Man" (2012)
UNLV's Visiting Artist Lecture Series begins Sept. 4 with Jackie Gendel, the painter who, as Ryan E. Steadman once wrote in Art Forum, "blends the impudent draftsmanship and audacious color of the Fauvists with a knack of caricature akin to New Yorker Cartoonist Rea Irvin." It opens the 2014 series that commits to a "diverse array of some of the most compelling artists and thinkers working in the art world today." The month fills out with talks from Joan Linder and her quill pen and ink complexity (Sept. 11), ceramic wunderkind Matt Wedel (Sept. 18), and animator Chris Sullivan (Sept. 25). Tony Tasset opens October's line-up. The lectures are Thursday evenings starting at 7 p.m. and open to the public.
