Zeitgeist Opens its Fall Art Season with Kurt Wagner and Wayne White

[ 4 ] September 4, 2011 |

From Zeitgeist-art.com:

Zeitgeist opens its Fall art season in Nashville with new work by two internationally recognized artists Kurt Wagner and Wayne White.

World known artist, art director, and puppeteer, Wayne White , is a Chattanooga native now living in LA. Mr. White has worked as an illustrator for the East Village Eye, New York Times, Raw Magazine, and the Village Voice and in 1986. He became a designer for the hit television show Pee-wee’s Playhouse, was awarded with three Emmys, and continued to work in television and music video garnering Billboard and MTV awards. His focus now is on painting.

Mr. White’s most recognizable works are his word paintings featuring oversized, three-dimensional text painstakingly integrated into vintage landscape lithographs. The paintings are thought-provoking and almost always humorous. Wayne enjoys pointing a finger at vanity, ego, and his memories of the South.

In 2009, Mr. White’s life and career were chronicled in a 382-page monograph, edited by Todd Oldham. The book features hundreds of images from Wayne ‘s earliest work as an illustrator all the way to his most recent fine art sculptures. Signed copies of the book will be available at the reception. Wayne will also be in the gallery from 2 to 4PM on Saturday, September 3rd.

Wayne was most recently in Nashville working with students at Watkins College of Art and Design.

Zeitgeist is also excited to feature work by Kurt Wagner. Mr. Wagner, an artist from Nashville and childhood friend of Mr. White, may be best known for his work with the band Lambchop, and then again maybe not.

Mr. Wagner holds undergraduate and graduate degrees in fine art from the Memphis Academy of Arts and Montana State University respectively.

Both Kurt and Wayne will be present for the opening reception on Thursday, September 1st.

Tuesday, September 13th, the Indeterminacies series kicks off its fall season with the Portara Quartet performing David Lang’s “The Little Match Girl Passion” in the gallery, 6-8PM.

  2. Solid write up. I’m studying something like this here at University of Alabama. It’s definitely beneficial to learn new
    facts from fellow writers and get expertise from new sources.
    If it’s okay, I’d greatly appreciate it if I could use some of
    the articles on your blog. And of course,
    I’ll post a backlink to your site at lambchop.net on my own page. Kudos for posting.

    Hi, I’m a writer based out of Montmollin, Switzerland and I found your site via http://www.lambchop.net/zeitgeist-opens-its-fall-art-season-with-kurt-wagner-and-wayne-white/comment-page-1/. Would you have any ideas for those considering blogging? I’m hope to launch my own site very soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Could you recommend starting with a free platform like PivotX or go for a paid option? I’m confronted with so many options
    and it’s all so daunting… What would you say?

  4. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add to
    my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
    I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite
    some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this.

    Please let me know if you run into anything.

    I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.
