Kveck, Russ & Stellmon: Break Ups & Tear Downs
October 23–January 23, 2016
Wendy Kveck, JK Russ and Erin Stellmon will fill the Marjorie Barrick Museum with an exhibition of their art. These three Las Vegas artists offer unique bodies of work that spring from a common practice of breaking down their subject, then reorganizing and reordering the pieces. The results, whether paintings, collages, photographs or constructions, are stunning and thoughtful revisualizations of contemporary themes.
Style Moderne: Art Glass from the Ruth and Mel Wolzinger Collection
July 24 – January 23, 2016
This exhibition presents a rich selection of glass objects from the Barrick Museum’s Art Glass Collection, including objects by Tiffany, Quezal, Steuben, Loetz, and Daum Nancy. The collection was built by Ruth Wolzinger, an avid fan and collector of art glass, over the course of 30+ years. She gave the collection to UNLV in 1995 to ensure that this unique art form would be preserved, appreciated and could potentially serve as a teaching tool.
