A Gallery Talk with Heyd Fontenot
Start Date: 11/29/2011Start Time: 6:00 PM
End Date: 11/29/2011End Time: 7:00 PM
Event Description:

Public Lecture at the Cornell Fine Arts Museum

Join artist Heyd Fontenot as he discusses his career path to date.

Fontenot's exhibition, The Very Queer Portraits of Heyd Fontenot, will be showing at the Cornell Fine Arts Museum at Rollins College from October 22, 2011 through January 8, 2012 and showcases two of the artist's main avenues of investigation:  the genre of portraiture and the nude figure. In his quirky likenesses, Fontenot emphasizes the expressive features of his subjects. Absurdly large heads, visual puns with erotic innuendoes, and the occasional goat foreground Fontenot's highly intentional sense of playfulness in his work.

Washington Post art critic Michael O'Sullivan states that "[Fontenot] has real talent.  His portrait busts are among the best works in the show.  You feel you know his subjects, though you've never met them."  The artist lives in Dallas and is represented by Inman Gallery, Houston, Texas.
