Wayne Thiebaud Lectures on Art and Drawing

For four decades, the legendary painter Wayne Thiebaud taught, passionately, at the University of California Davis, until retiring aged 70. As a teacher, Thiebaud had introduced thousands of undergraduates to the delights of great art and art making. Thiebaud still refers to exercises he would assign his students when explaining the dynamics of his own works. Here, collected for the first time, are student records of Thiebaud’s famous lectures, which include Beginning Drawing, Descriptive Drawing, Life Drawing, Beginning Painting, Printmaking, and Theory and Criticism. These lecture notes are, apart from everything else, delightful and vibrant. They are concrete, efficient, not the wanderings of an imported academic star who takes class off early to get to the tennis courts.

LG Williams: “An Orange County Favorite”

LG Williams Orange County Weekly Dave Barton

The Book Of Phyllis (2017)

It is my great honour and privilege to announce the completion of my first book of 2017: “The Book Of Phyllis” (Phyllis Lutjeans).
 
Lutjeans, now 87 and still living in Irvine, has been an integral part of the LA and OC art scene since the 1960s. At the Newport Harbor Art Museum (now OCMA), she was a curator of performance art. Famously in 1972, artist Chris Burden went on her weekly cable TV talk show (“All About Art”) and threatened her with a knife for a performance piece he called “TV Hi-Jack.” Los Angeles Art critic Mat Gleason calls her a “legend.” Since her retirement in 1992, she has facilitated monthly seminars, under the guise of “The Art Crowd’.
 
The 478 page, black and white, paperback book, is published by PCP Press and available thru Amazon. ISBN-10: 1542655099
The Book Of Phyllis by LG Williams

The Book Of…[Your Name Here]

LG Williams The Book Of

The Book Of … is a series of photography books by American artist LG Williams. The Book Of [Your Name Here] series, originating in January 2015, is an artistic re-examination of the “miracle” of the daguerreotype photograph, in which the artist reaches back to the birth of photography.

On August 19, 1839 the French Academy of Sciences announced the invention of the daguerreotype by the scene painter and physicist Louis-Jaques-Mande Daguerre (1787-1851). Word of the discovery spread swiftly, and the daguerreotype photography enjoyed great popularity until the 1850s, especially in America where the process was free from patent restrictions.

While there was great demand for portraits captured by the “miracle” of photography, early daguerreotype technology had its shortcomings. The necessarily long exposure times that were required to capture an image, fifteen minutes on average under bright lights, led to necessarily inevitable lacunae in representing the subject. The resulting single image daguerreotypes are de facto composites of the lapsed long exposure time, but not, as was purported, scientifically captured replicas of both time and image.

This publication and series presents an opportunity for Williams to provide an artistic, political, and social perspective on the missing truths, images, and loss of time that occurred during the age of Daguerre. In other words, each book from this single-portrait-series consists of hundreds of continuous images during a fifteen-minute stretch of time, or just about as many images as the artist could take as fast as possible using his out-dated FujiFilm FinePix Z70 3-MP Digital Camera. From this historical perspective, Williams’ series points to the limitations of daguerreotype photography with the seemingly limitless possibilities of contemporary analogue-image capture and production.

The books are published by PCP Press and available on Amazon.com.
