Lecture April 18 David Lusk Gallery

David Lusk Gallery
TALK: Veda Reed
sat 18 apr, 11am
Join us this Saturday for an opportunity to gain insight into the mind and work of longstanding Memphis artist and Instructor Veda Reed.
In this exhibition octogenarian Reed studies the brief yet captivating final seconds of twiilight. The artist grew up in rural Oklahoma, where an appreciation for the sky comes with the territory. Working with excesively thin oil glazes on monumental canvases, her painting technique and process are hideen, thereby allowing pictorial drama to become paramount. 
“There is a moment after the sun drops below the horizon at sunset when the sky seems to come alive in the last light of the day.” Reed continues, “Clouds are edged in gold or colored like jewels; or struggling to stay visible, the sun presents either a soft or a brilliantly glowing self image as it slips below the horizon, high clouds turn pink in the east and the sky turns red on the western horizon. In a breath, the light is gone.”
We will see you there!
