This is among artist Patrick Earl Hammie’s works now on display the UW Visual Arts Gallery.

Artist Patrick Earl Hammie will deliver a lecture at the University of Wyoming Thursday, Nov. 13, at 7 p.m. in the Visual Arts Building, Room 111. The event is free and open to the public.

Hammie’s exhibition, titled “Premortem,” will be on display at the UW Visual Arts Gallery through Nov. 28. A reception is scheduled Friday, Nov. 14, from 6-8 p.m. in the Visual Arts Gallery, located on the corner of 22nd Street and Willett Drive.

Considering that the potential paintings of the human figure have to reflect the values of the period in which they are produced, Hammie’s work investigates the expectations built into this genre, probing and dismantling the idealizing impulses that have historically shaped it. He focuses specifically on constructions of gender and race, putting pressure on these categories as a means of expanding understandings of identity.

He is represented by Yeelen Gallery in Miami, and his work has been exhibited nationwide and internationally in solo exhibitions and numerous group exhibitions, including the Kunstwerk Carlshutte in Germany, the Indianapolis Art Center in Indiana, and the Drawing Center in New York. His work also has appeared in public collections, including the Kohler Company and the Kinsey Institute at Indiana University.

Hammie is an assistant professor at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Campaign.

The Visual Arts Gallery is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m.-5 p.m.
