John Lackey's TRIBOLITE
If you've ever been to Holler Poets Series, you've probably had the pleasure of knowing Lexington artist John Lackey.
He produces the compelling posters for Lexington's monthly literati event, is a serious mountain lover and anti mountain-top coal removal activist, and has a new art gallery on the opposite corner of Al's Bar & Grill on the corner of Sixth and Limestone.
Lackey's newest creative excursion, TRIBOLITE, will be unveiled on June 17th during Gallery Hop beginning at 5pm. Here's the scoop:
TRILOBITE one painting • one print • one movie The evolution of art on display at Homegrown Press, from the debut of John's new block print for the KAC Governor's Award in the Arts, to the debut of a new stop-action movie, the frames of which were painted on a pair of 4' by 5' canvases, and the wildflower-strewn landscape painting that those canvases became. Paintings and block prints from previous exhibits will be on display in the back rooms. Reception for TRILOBITE will be during the June 17th Gallery Hop from 5-8pm, but the exhibit will run through July!
