Artist Statement about work: The Journey of LIfe continues to be SubjQuiltF025 of my artwork. Voyage depicts a primitive traveler who dreams to go beyond his own time, so much so that the traveler passes into a time and space of unlimited possibilities.

Artist Statement- Cynthia Lockhart's textile art is infused with a kaleidoscope of diverse influences such as: Nature, fashion, music, travel, and African arts. Lockhart's quilts are distinguished by their pulsating colors, which simulate the vivaciousness of her African ancestry, and by their irregular, organic shapes. Lockhart holds the distinct honor of having her artwork reviewed and published in the New York Times. Her work is included in the collections of the Cincinnati Art Museum, University of Cincinnati and private collectors. Lockhart's work has been featured in The Artist Magazine and 25 published books. Noteworthy is her inclusion in the, "Encyclopedia of African American Artists." Lockhart has lectured at conferences throughout United States, Japan, Italy and France. Lockhart was featured in a solo exhibition in the Weston Art gallery at the Aronoff Center; additionally she has exhibited nationally and internationally. Lockhart is a Professor of Professional Practice at the University of Cincinnati, where she teaches fashion design in the College of Design, Architecture, Art and Planning. As an award-winning artist Lockhart continues to be an active contributor in the design and art community. Cynthia Lockhart featured on HGTV "Simply Quilts" in her studio | See below link. http://www.hgtv.com/video/art-couture-quilter-video/index.html Cynthia Lockhart
