Denver Art Society

Honors Black History Month

Friday, February 2

DAS celebrates Black History Month with internationally renowned artist Dr. Thomas E. Lockhart III and photographer Travis Broxton.

Dr. Lockhart’s process is as unique as his ability to flow between genres and techniques.  When asked what is style is, he smiles and replies with “all styles are my style.”  Starting with a blank black canvas, and using a white crayon or pencil, he sketches out what he sees in his mind’s eye. Layering elements of fabric, paper and metal, he infuses textures to match the intricate lines of his creations.

The great photographer Minor White stated, “One should not only photograph things for what they are, but for what else they are.” Travis Broxton creates images that call attention to the things we see but don’t see. He uses selective duplication and reconstruction to create unique new designs by finding an imaginative way to reassemble the subject.

Rounding out the program, DAS brings the music of Tiffany Lynn & Friends to the stage, liturgical dance by Da’Janai Smith, and the spoken word performances of Bridgette Tolbert and Volleny Bryant.  CJ’s Stick Fingers will provide soul food!

Additionally, Ellie and the Alibis and Soneffs 8 will be on stage from 5 – 6 p.m. followed by Angela Perry and PawnShop Motel from 8 – 10 p.m.

The mission of the Denver Art Society is to host a creative community where people of all ages can view, learn, and exhibit local art in all forms. We volunteer to open a public gallery (open 7 days/week 10 a.m.-7 p.m.) where our members can show their art without censorship. We also maintain dozens of studios and hold various classes where artists can learn and grow together.
