Debra Lott

Award winning and published artist Debra Lott, a south Florida transplant to Kentucky, is inspired by the human form. “Beyond my artistic endeavor is also a desire to elevate each person’s value, to create awareness and to promote their position with a visual expression of their spirit.”

Her social justice themed paintings have been featured in the National Art Education Women’s Caucus four years in a row, as well as the National Women’s Caucus for the Arts at Kniznick Gallery at Brandeis University, Boston, and the St Louis National Caucus for the Arts in St. Louis, Missouri.

Regionally, her work has been showcased at Family Scholar House and The Center for Women and Families, and the University Of Louisville Women’s Commission has purchased her work for Family Scholar House.  Lott’s one woman show was chosen for a video segment on Insight Communications Network, Villionaire Series including an interview about her work and technique. Her work has been juried in the 54th and 55th Mid States Art Exhibition at the Evansville Museum of Arts, IN, and Louisville’s Water Tower Exhibition.

Mrs. Lott’s drawing series, Seasons of Grace, was selected for publication in the International Drawing Annual 5 Exhibition in Print. Two of her paintings were featured on the cover of the publication Pure/Uncut/Candy. She was a fulltime art educator for 26 years and the National publication, Schoolarts, has published 14 of her articles, featuring her projects on two of their covers.

The artist has received two grants from Kentucky Foundation for Women to create and display a series of large-scale portraits revealing the beauty of elderly women as well as a Kentucky Arts Council Individual Professional Development Grant.
