Event Description

Join 516 ARTS and guest curator Lea Anderson in welcoming visiting San Francisco-based artist Melissa Gwyn to Albuquerque for a unique presentation and talk at CNM's Smith-Brasher Hall. Gwyn will give a presentation on her decades long painterly preoccupation with surface, illusion, rupture and revelation. In paintings that are non-representational and realistic, kitschy and substantial, Gwyn's work rests between the idiosyncratic and the political.

This presentation is in conjunction with the exhibition Flatlanders & Surface Dwellers at 516 ARTS where Melissa Gwyn is exhibiting works from her series Fabergenic. In these paintings Gwyn explores the subjects of inheritance, opulence and power.

Free and open to the public.

I might attend if this artist is talking about painting Easter eggs.
