Bio:  My name is Clara Ines Toro – CARLOTA – and I was born in Colombia, South America. My passion for art started in the early years of my life. Even as a small child, I felt a connection between brush, color and canvas and my inner self. When I created images with these materials I felt that I was making something magical – a new form, a new window on reality. As I matured, I realized that my inspiration and focus came from forms, colors and lines and that the best way to express myself and represent my ideas and feelings was through painting.
By the time I finished high school, I focused all my energy and dedication on learning the trades of decoration combined with art. I explored different styles, ideas and artists. While doing so, I had the good fortune to be mentored by an accomplished and skillful Colombian painter, David Manzur. Through years of training, I discovered a passion for Abstract Art and a preference for using acrylics in my work, combined with oils as a resource of texture.
Creating new visual experience from the endless possible combinations of color, form and texture gives me both satisfaction and pleasure and expresses the profound link that I have with art.

Artist Bio

LOKEY was born in Amarillo, TX. and grew up in Houston, TX. After graduating from The Art Institute of Houston in 1998 and receiving an Associates of Applied Science Degree he went on to attend the School of Photographic Studies in Prague, Czech Republic on a scholarship to continue his studies. He moved to Phoenix, AZ working as a freelance photographer. Around 2002 he focused his photography to fine art and spends summers abroad photographing street photography in Europe.

His work is included in the permanent collections of the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, the Amarillo Museum of Art, as well the Arizona State University and many private collections.

Lokey’s photographs have been exhibited throughout the United States and Europe including Magnus University, Kaunas, Lithuania, NAFOTO’s IV Mes International da Forografia-San Palo, Brazil, The Amarillo Museum of Art-Amarillo, Texas, Li Photo Gallery-San Palo, Brazil, Gallery 4118- Houston, TX and Kunsthaus Tacheles-Berlin, Germany. He has participated in several past FotoFest Biennial reviews and exhibited at two participating spaces during 2012 FotoFest.

March 2014 Lokey had a book signing and exhibit of “Texas Quail Rigs” at Meredith Long & Company, Houston, as a part of FotoFest participating spaces.

In August 2015 Lokey moved to Prague, Czech Republic. He is available for hire on projects both in the United States as well as Europe. He is planning on moving from Prague and returning back to his Texas roots by the fall of 2019.

ABOUT THE PROJECT: Texas Quail Rigs

The scope of a vanishing tradition and culture of quail hunting in Texas reaches far beyond the art of photography. Lokey traveled throughout Texas’s quail country to photograph and study the trucks represented in his book Texas Quail Rigs which will be released in March 2014. Each one of the 120 plus rigs is different, and reflects the personality of its owner and builder. His project was an opportunity to ensure a place in history for a tradition that has gone on for decades and is ever changing as the quail population and hunters grow less each year. The photographs are as much a tribute to the unique rigs and their owners as it is to an era of tradition. Lokey’s photographs should be seen as a documentation of history as much as art.

Artist Bio

Diverse, technical and showing a geeky point of view – those are Don’s Photographs.

Don has been an art groupie since he married Kathy Golden, an artist who paints in oils.  Don has received no formal training in photography, but is self-taught and a product of the school of trial and error.
