June 23. This is Lockett's first solo show. The artist was a self-taught aretist from Alabama (he passed away in 1998). He learned to paint watching television and usually uses sophisticated collage elements in his work.
His work can be dark but it also often shows the artists affinity with the natural world. A travelling exhibition of his work opens in June at the American Folk Art Museum. It will also be shown at High Museum of Art (Atlanta)and the Ackland Art Museum (Chapel Hill, NC.).
