Urbis Octaptych... The work of Lincoln Maynard @ the Barrick Museum...

If there is an artist in this community that can and should be seen by arts aficionados around the world it is Lincoln Maynard. Inspired by his desert urban environment, Lincoln creates works that are not just visually stunning but his use of media permits him to also create surfaces that emulate the textures of the desert. He works diligently adding layers upon layers of media to his amazing home-made canvases, thus transforming them into windows of the very environment he lives in. Lincoln works with scale, so when added to a space his work speaks volumes, that is why I cannot encourage the public enough to see this treasure of an artist that lives in our midst.

This evening Lincoln will be having an opening reception for his solo show at the Barrick Museum on the Campus of UNLV. The reception begins at 6pm and is free to the public.
