Her exhibit is so good it’s almost edible.
The Northview Gallery presents Las Vegas artist Wendy Kveck’s “Sweet Devouration” exhibit to be on display from Monday, Nov. 16 to Dec. 11. The show, which consists of artwork featuring food, will be held at the gallery in Room 214, CT Building, Sylvania Campus (12000 S.W. 49th Ave.). There will be an artist talk at the gallery from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m., Tuesday, Nov. 17, followed by a reception.
“Wendy will show new paintings as well as a sculptural piece,” said Vicki Wilson, gallery curator. “The work is bright, thick and looks good enough to eat.”
Kveck is a visual artist that works in painting, performance and video. Born and raised in the Chicago suburbs, she currently lives and works in Las Vegas, Nevada. She holds a bachelor’s degree in art from the University of Iowa and received her master’s degree in art from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, where she currently teaches as an adjunct faculty member. In 2007, Kveck received an honorarium funded by the National Endowment for the Arts to participate as a guest artist at the Americans for the Arts national conference, “Risk and Reward.” She is a 2009 nominee for the Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation award and her work has been exhibited nationally in Nevada, Texas, Arizona and Chicago.
