Description

Visiting Artist Lecture Series: Judy Ledgerwood

The UNLV College of Fine Arts' Department of Art presents the Visiting Artist Lecture Series with Artist Judy Ledgerwood.

Confronting the traditions of modernist painting, Judy Ledgerwood uses color as the primary agent to question the conventions of painting. Early in her career, Ledgerwood began incorporating traditionally feminine pastel colors into her paintings in an attempt to challenge and undermine the historically male-dominated tradition of abstract painting. Today her compositions include circular motifs typically associated with the decorative arts tradition and the pastel palette has been replaced in favor of more optically stimulating hues.
