Art Exhibition and Reception – Amos Lemon Burkhart

June 15, 2019 @ 3:00 pm

A Retrospective Amos Lemon Burkhart (1998–2018) The exhibition documents the restless exploration of techniques, ideas, and methods of the young prodigy Amos Lemon Burkhart who worked to understand and express his own turbulent interior life. The complexities of emotional lability, anxiety, and trauma, questions about love, sex and gender identity, and issues around substance use and abuse are revealed in complex, layered images. A ceaseless observer of the quirks and oddities of the humanrace, Lemon’s wit, humor, and despair are all on display – if you look closely enough. Lemon was accepted to Montserrat’s class of 2023, but died tragically in a drug-and-alcohol-related drowning in Beverly in 2018. Special thanks to Dane Burkhart and Ann Lemon www.amoslemon.org
