The gallery congratulates program artist TIM BAVINGTON on his induction into the UNLV Entertainer/Artist Hall of Fame last night!
Says the Las Vegas Review-Journal:
“[The new inductees are] Tim Bavington, a visual artist whose body of work includes the striking transformation of music into color; Sue Kim, a singer and musician who, with her sisters, left South Korea and became international singing stars; and, of course, the late Joe Williams, one of the most acclaimed jazz vocalists ever.
All three artists and entertainers — along with UNLV arts supporter June Brennan and UNLV alumnus Ronnie Vannucci of the band The Killers — will be honored Thursday evening during the 11th annual Nevada Entertainer/Artist Hall of Fame induction ceremony and dinner at UNLV.
Bavington, Kim and Williams, the three Hall of Fame honorees, will receive the Sidney award, named for award-winning movie director and producer George Sidney, who worked with such stars as Sidney Poitier, Tony Curtis, Frank Sinatra, Clark Gable, Ann-Margret, Lana Turner and Howard Keel. (Fans of Las Vegas cinema know that Sidney also directed Elvis Presley and Ann-Margret in 1964’s ‘Viva Las Vegas.’ “
We are very proud of Tim, and congratulate him on this career milestone.
Congratulations to Mark Moore Gallery artist CHRISTOPHER RUSSELL who appears in the new copy of “The Photobook: A History Volume III” authored by Martin Parr and Gerry Badger.
