My Thoughts on Everything | Bob Lockhart Solo Show
May 31 - June 29, 2019
Opening Reception: May 31, 6:00 -8:00PM
Enchanting troupes of fantastical beings dance within colorfully surreal worlds. “My Thoughts on Everything” is a solo show of over 20 drawings by nationally renowned artist, Bob Lockhart. This new body of work highlights the artist's unique perspective of our current times, through his own symbolism and creative lens. Not only are these drawings visually spectacular, they challenge the viewer with tounge-in-cheek humor, pop culture references, satirical word play, and surreal introspection.
While it's been nearly a decade since Bob Lockhart retired from teaching at Bellarmine University, he's as prolific as ever. This collection of new drawings marks a turning point in Lockhart's work with increased political commentary. His drawings spark joy through imaginative dreamscapes of vivid hues and layered texture, while also challenging the viewer with controversial statements. Through his own distinct voice, Lockhart taps into a universal psyche of our current era. As a cathartic way to cope with and make sense of the world today, the artist incorporates references to pop culture, such as phrases overheard from the news. Within the context of his whimsical characters, such statements are laced with satirical humor. Various phrases can be found written around the perimeter, weaving in and out of the background, surrounded by speech bubbles, or adorning picket signs. “My Thoughts on Everything” is sure to delight viewers while demonstrating the artist's important role of holding a mirror to the world around them.
We invite you to join us as we celebrate this wonderful and timely exhibition by one of Louisville's most celebrated artists. ”My Thoughts on Everything” will run from May 31 – June 29, 2019. The Opening Reception will be held at Kaviar Gallery on May 31, 6-8PM during the F.A.T Friday Trolley Hop!
As the grand finale for Kaviar Gallery, we are pleased our final exhibition celebrates this incredibly talented artist. After the close of this exhibition, Kaviar Gallery will transition from a fine art exhibition space to a by-appointment-only showroom for the artistic metalwork of Craig Kaviar. We are grateful and take great pride in the work we've accomplished over the last 15 years with hundreds of wonderful local, regional, and national artists.
