Lecture with Cynthia Lockhart

Cynthia Lockhart’s fiber art is infused with a kaleidoscope of diverse influences such as:  nature, fashion, music, dance, travel, African and other cultural arts. Lockhart’s textiles are distinguished by their pulsating colors, which simulate the vivaciousness of her African ancestry, and by their irregular, organic shapes and circles.

The artist’s textile creations, which push the boundaries of the traditional quilt form, are composed of colorful fabrics arranged in dynamic patterns. Her fashion and accessories design background provide the perfect platform for creating exquisite three-dimensional artwork.  Lockhart’s fiber art tells a story – one that encourages people to understand the diversity of people, cultures, and beauty in the world around them.

As an award-winning international artist, she is an active contributor in the design arts community. As Emerita Associate Professor at the University of Cincinnati, Professor Lockhart has lectured at conferences and museums throughout the United States, Japan, Italy and France. She is a member of the Women of Color Quilters Network. In 2021, Lockhart received the Ohio Arts Council Individual Excellence Award.

Cynthia was a Fiberart International 2013 participant artist.
