Bob Farley/ — Artist Laura Lockhart will show her work for the fifth year at the Magic City Art Connection this weekend. Her art is inspired by her travels. She uses the photography she makes on her trips abroad and combines the prints with painting. These works are done on masonite and involve an intricate layering process of photographs, wax and acrylic. In some cases, sandm grass or seaweed is also used to create ubnusual textures. She was inspired to create her series of travel imagery by a quote from Mark Twain. “Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Briad, who;esome views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.”
