Biography

Wendy Kveck’s work confronts popular images and historical depictions of women as cultural markers through the mediums of painting, drawing, collage and performance. Informed by a feminist practice, her collaborative performances activate social perceptions and dialogue around vulnerability, chaos, agency and transformation.

Kveck exhibits and lectures nationally and is a 2018 recipient of a Soaring Gardens Artist Retreat fellowship through the Ora Lerman Charitable Trust. She is an advocate for the Las Vegas arts community through her various roles as an artist, organizer, volunteer, gallery director and board member for non-profit arts organizations and institutions including the Contemporary Arts Center, Cultural Alliance Nevada and the Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art.

Wendy is also the founder of Settlers + Nomads, a collective curatorial project highlighting contemporary art and artists with ties to Las Vegas, Nevada with local, national and international reach within the contemporary art world.
