Join me on Friday, March 25th at the art reception for Brodalisque: New Work by Klaire A. Lockheart in Gallery 110 on the campus of the University of South Dakota. The closing reception for my paintings will last from 5:00-7:00 pm in Vermillion, South Dakota. I created these new oil paintings to challenge the traditional male gaze with a generous grant from the Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation.
Ariana Schumacher interviewed me for Keloland about my birthday party and the upcoming Femininity in the Post-Apocalypse art exhibition. You can watch "Vermillion artist invites community to art party" to see a preview of the exhibition and learn more about my Thunderdomesticity Party. The Vermillion Area Arts Council is hosting the art reception, which will be on Saturday, March 19th, from 6-9 pm at the Washington Street Arts Center, 202 Washington Street, Vermillion, SD. (Admission is free, but please remember to bring along proof of vaccination and your mask.)
I invite you to celebrate my birthday with me on March 19th at my Thunderdomesticity Party! This event will include an amazing art reception at the Washington Street Arts Center, 202 Washington Street, Vermillion, SD. The Femininity in the Post-Apocalypse exhibition features artwork by Reyna Hernandez, Epiphany Knedler, Erin Murtha, and Aaron Packard. The party lasts from 6:00-9:00 pm, admission is free, and the Vermillion Area Arts Council will sell drinks and snacks. Instead of bringing birthday gifts, I encourage you to buy presents for yourself because all the art at the reception will be for sale.
If you're in the Vermillion area, check out the Alumni Art Exhibit at the John A. Day Gallery. I have three brand new oil paintings in this show, and this is the first time they've ever been publicly displayed! You can learn more about the exhibition in the article "John A. Day Alumni Art Exhibit features work from artists in the area" by Machaela Freeman.
Did you see that I am teaching an online costuming class on Sunday, March 13th? It's called Feral Housewife: Thunderdomesticity Costume Workshop, and I hope you'll join me! This workshop is hosted by the Vermillion Area Arts Council, but it will take place on Zoom. I will show you the steps I take to create my post-apocalyptic style dresses and aprons so you can make your own! Cost is $20, and you can register on my website. The deadline to sign up is March 11th.
I am excited to announce that I will have artwork in the upcoming Boosting the Signal Art Show curated by the Gal's Guide Library.
