The Image Flow is pleased to celebrate the unveiling of Tiburon portrait and figurative artist Ingrid C. Lockowandt’s original acrylic painting and award-winning photograph, The Harmonica Player, on Saturday, September 13.
Ingird was born in Kiel in northern Germany and says she’s been painting and drawing as long as she can remember. It is through her art, she says, that she learned to enter her own world. As a young artist in the early 1980s, Ingrid studied briefly with Dago Kleemann and Werner Rieger, but was unable to afford art school. Later financed her art by working in a motorcycle shop—an experience which has influenced both her life and her art. In an effort to promote her own work, Ingrid began to work as a curator organizing large multimedia shows and large-scale exhibitions in Germany. She was later able to open her own gallery in Kiel and founded an artist’s group.
Ready for a new adventure, Ingrid arrived in San Francisco in 1992 with a single bag and the address of a friend of a friend—and she didn’t speak English. Through grit and perseverance Ingrid established herself in the Bay Area, and continues to make art, as well as write her autobiography. In her work, she says she is searching for the look that “reveals the personality and character of her subject.” Learn more about Ingrid and explore her work on her website.
Gertrud Parker founder and chairman of the board of San Francisco’s Museum of Craft and Folk Art has called Ingrid, “multitalented and very impressive as a serious artist.”
Please join us Saturday, September 13, 2014 from 6 to 8PM to celebrate this wonderful artist. The official unveiling will be at 7PM. Refreshments will be served.
