BOB LOCKHART: Untold Portraits & Profoundly Untrue Statements
May 29, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - July 9, 2015 @ 10:00 pm
ART SHOW OPENING: “Untold Portraits and Profoundly Untrue Statements” by Bob Lockhart
Revelry is honored to present Louisville legend Bob Lockhart in another astounding show titled “Untold Portraits and Profoundly Untrue Statements.” Bob Lockhart is one of this city’s most illustrious and renowned artists. Some know him as their art professor from Bellarmine University. Some know him as the wacky guy with the crazy sculptures. All others know him simply as their dear friend, Bob. No matter how Bob has touched your life, he always makes an impact and this new body of work is no exception.
This series depicts people of historical greatness, hysterical repute, and people he has come to know over a cup of coffee. The likenesses of these individuals stirred a reaction in the artist and spawned a new artistic endeavor for him. The portraits he has created are realistic, almost truer than life when done in his uniquely Lockhart style with Neo-color and Prismacolor pencils. The images titillate the viewer through vibrate color and hypnotizing line work. Also included are statements the artist has recently discovered which are paired with each drawing that may be attributed to its subject, or maybe not. You will see Abe Lincoln, Ben Franklin, Jim James, and Teddy Abrams, along with a few surprises too, so you won’t want to miss it!
“I’ve never done portraits before in drawing. So I’m really excited to show them to the world!” – Bob Lockhart
This event is free and open to the public.
The show will run from May 29 – July 9.
