Event Details

The South Dakota Art Museum Guild invites you to join us in-person or via Zoom for the second program of the 2021-2022 Guild Program Series - open to the public and Guild members - featuring Vermillion, SD artist, Klaire Lockheart, in a lively talk entitled, Miss Art World South Dakota.

Lockheart is a feisty artist who uses traditional oil painting techniques to critique historical injustices in the traditional Western art world. She has lived in South Dakota since she earned her MFA from the University of South Dakota, and she earned her BS degree from South Dakota State University. She is currently Miss Art World South Dakota and the Artist in Residence at the Vermillion Area Arts Council. Lockheart enjoys using the human form as a vehicle to communicate the agency of her subjects with viewers, especially since women artists were historically prohibited from studying live models and making historic paintings. In addition to addressing femininity and feminism within her artwork, Lockheart incorporates humor to make serious subjects approachable. She also celebrates the accomplishments of women, and she is the South Dakota artist for the national Her Flag collaborative artwork. Her recent solo exhibitions include Feminine Attempts at the Sioux City Art Center in Sioux City, IA; A is for Apron at the Ritz Gallery in Brookings, SD; and Ladylike Representations at Gallery 120 in Inver Grove Heights, MN.
