‘American Schoolgirl’ is sure to pack a punchSection 4A, The Arts Thursday, February 21st, 2013
Rob Lucas is a local artist, photographer and entrepreneur. He is the owner and creative force behind Modern Aperture, a local photo agency that has been churning out some pretty fab glam rock photos of late. Color, emotion and a soupçon of kick-ass attitude seem to be part of the Lucas calling card.
Like many artists, especially those whose work is more commercially oriented Lucas devotes some of his time tending to personal projects. Artists are often born observes, their creative work serving a role trying to explain or intervene in some of our more disturbing social ills. That is quite clearly the case with American Schoolgirl a brand new series of images that Lucas will be exhibiting at Discovery, an evening of visual and performing arts being organized by San Diego RAW Artists.
American Schoolgirl is a set of eleven images that will be showcased during a 4-hour event at Block No.16 Union and Spirits, 344 7th Ave. in San Diego. These brand new photographs are under lock and key until opening night but lucky LGBT readers get a sneak peak at one of them here in this column. It looks like American Schoolgirl is going to pack a punch!
If you haven’t heard of them yet, RAW: Natural Born Artists is an independent arts organization designed for and run by artists. It’s a community spanning more than 60 cities in the U.S. and Australia that is driven by a mission to provide emerging, independent artists with the tools, resources and exposure that newer artists need to keep pushing forward. Based on their Web site it looks like they are unstoppable!
Many of you will have seen Lucas’ photos in print and online. But you won’t get the chance to see his prints up close and in person that often. Here is an excellent chance to do so. I hope you can make it!
