BARBETTA LOCKART

CONTEMPORARY ARTIST

THE ARTIST

Barbetta Lockart is a contemporary artist from Sacramento, California, whose 2D and 3D work often include fiber of some type. An artist who enjoys creating mixed media pieces, little goes to waste in her studio; almost everything will eventually be incorporated into another piece of art; somehow, some way.  Lockart also paints, sculpts, works in collage, and creates jewelry.

Thematically, her work addresses social and political issues although not exclusively.  Lockart’s work is informed by her surroundings, travels, current events, personal interests and day-to-day reality.

She has shown her work throughout the United States and abroad.

Lockart maintains a studio in Sacramento, CA where she creates and teaches.  Her studio is open by appointment.
