Las Vegas Artist Lincoln Maynard to Exhibit at UNLV Barrick Museum
IMAGE CAPTION – Lincoln Maynard, detail of Urbis, 2011, 5’ x 6’
Prolific Las Vegas artist Lincoln Maynard brings his vision to the UNLV Barrick Museum in a solo exhibition entitled Urbis Octaptych: The City… the times, the promise. Curated by Brian Alvarez in cooperation with Aurore Giguet, Barrick Museum program director, this one time show optimizes the museums large walls and open floor space, with the intention to create an event expressing the unfocused, and unspecific options facing individuals, cities and in this case institutions. This Octaptych - eight 6’ X 5’ similar city windows, is intended to allow the viewer to use their vision to fill the windows, or assimilate their emptiness.
Also on display will be a smaller version of Maynard’s ‘Urbis Octaptych’, eight paintings that will be included in a silent auction, with 100% of the proceeds benefiting the UNLV Marjorie Barrick Museum. In addition, adjacent to the main exhibition space, Lincoln Maynard will be exhibiting select paintings from his personal collection. Maynard’s works are textural studies in line, form, color, and scale, inspired by the desert landscape and architectural cityscape of the Las Vegas Valley.
