Artists Now! Guest Lecture Series: Shane Walsh
February 28, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Shane Walsh’s paintings are the result of his involvement with collage, both in a literal sense and as a conceptual framework for understanding the legacy of abstraction. By considering technology, 90’s underground youth culture, and art history, he works to re-construct an image of abstraction that feels appropriate to his time and place.
Walsh teaches in the Painting and Drawing area at UWM and his work has been included in solo and group shows in New York, Los Angeles, Seattle, St. Louis, and Miami. He is represented in Milwaukee by The Alice Wilds Gallery.
The Department of Art & Design proudly presents the 11th season of Artists Now!, a Wednesday evening lecture series designed for a broad audience with an interest in contemporary visual art. It presents a diverse group of artists working across traditional, hybrid and emergent disciplines. Join these nationally and inter- nationally recognized practitioners as they explore and expand the boundaries of creative visual practice today.
All lectures take place on Wednesdays at 7:30 pm in the Arts Center Lecture Hall on the UWM campus. FREE and open to the public!
