Jasper Community Arts is pleased to present the work of Louisville, KY award-winning artist, Bob Lockhart for the months of November and December at the Thyen-Clark Cultural Center.
Lockhart’s solo exhibit is a mixture of 2-D Drawings and 3-D sculptures. Bob Lockhart is an award-winning sculptor whose work is in the permanent collections of the Whitney Museum of Art in New York, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Speed Art Museum in Louisville, the Indianapolis Art Museum and many others. In addition, Lockhart’s pieces have been commissioned by the Louisville Zoo, by numerous churches and schools and by private collectors.
