Exhibit Brings Call to Arms to Winchester Gallery

February 5, 2009 by  

Artist Chad Brown brings his fusion of architectural imagery and abstract techniques to the Winchester Gallery beginning Feb. 17. An artist reception will be held in his honor from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Feb. 20 at the gallery, located inside the Winchester Cultural Center at 3130 S. McLeod Drive. The exhibit will continue at the gallery through April 17.

Brown, who has presented a number of exhibits in the Las Vegas valley during the last few years, reintroduces his “every man” figure, clad in a white shirt and black pants, into a new collection of paintings. Although looser than previous depictions, the appearance of his “every man” is “a call to arms” for viewers. The connection between this figure and the often chosen similar dress of President Barack Obama is a poignant statement for the artist. Brown’s intent is to suggest a space that asks the viewer to consider how they can participate in this new era. The collection also will include a 30-foot mural designed specifically for the curved wall of the gallery space.

Brown earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Studio Art from the University of Texas at Austin in 2001 and his Master of Fine Arts degree in Studio Art from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas in 2006. That same year, he received the Wally Goodman and Patrick Duffy Best in Show award for his work in the 55th Art Roundup Juried Exhibition at the Las Vegas Art Museum. Recently, Brown participated in a two-person show at the Dust Gallery.

Clark County Parks and Recreation sponsors the exhibit with partial funding from the Nevada Arts Council. The Winchester Gallery is open from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sunday. The gallery is closed on Mondays.

Those interested in “your move” by Chad Brown can call the Winchester Cultural Center at 455-7340 or visit the Web site at www.accessclarkcounty.com/parks.
