The Arts & Business Council, Blackbird Media, and F&M Bank have teamed up to present the Artist of the Week on The Nashville Sign. This week’s featured artist is Edwin Lockridge!
Edwin is a Nashville native with over 50 years of experience in fine arts, including mixed media and graphic arts. Despite many years of experience, he says he has “only scratched the surface.”
While Edwin regularly creates with a wide variety of tools and materials, he gathers inspiration everywhere he goes and claims the world as his preferred medium. He invites viewers of his art to “come see what I see.” Edwin took classes at Watkins College of Art and enjoys connecting with other artists. He joined Daybreak Arts in May 2019.
Although Edwin has been experiencing homelessness for the past 3 years, he is hopeful for his future and art career. With the income generated from his art sales, he plans to reinvest in his craft and find stable housing.
Check out Edwin’s Instagram or his online portfolio. To learn more about Daybreak Arts and their programs that create artistic and economic opportunities for people experiencing homelessness and housing insecurity, visit https://daybreakarts.org.
