Art Lecture with Gary Carlos

April 20, 2023 7 PM - April 20, 2023 8 PM

Enjoy an evening at the Haggin Museum! Events vary from special guests to live music and everything in between. This evening, hosted by the Junior Women’s Group, is perfect for a night out with friends or a date! Enjoy a complimentary glass of wine, beginning at 6:30 pm, as you socialize with friends before the program begins at 7 pm. The museum and store are open until 9 pm. Seating at events varies and is limited to ensure the safety of visitors and the museum’s collection.


Join us for an art talk with artist and San Joaquin Delta College professor Gary Carlos. His work connects the intimate scale of mark-making in art, with the monumental and collective “mark-making” that is visible all around us in our landscape.  Growing up and living in the Central Valley, Gary is particularly interested in marks, patterns, lines, and shapes that are the result of agriculture and housing.  He has always been interested in making the connection between any kind of mark that is the result of human labor, but that are also the result of society and culture: from ancient cuneiform to aerial views of orchards, the incised lines of an etching, to marks in mowed grass of rolling hills, circuit boards to suburban sprawl, and minimalist abstract compositions to large-scale farming.
