Carl Lotick (1878-1958) was an early contributor to the art scene in the Southern Indiana-Louisville, Kentucky, region. He was one of only six artists invited to show in the seminal first exhibition at James L. Russell’s Art Shop in 1914 in New Albany, sharing wall space with Paul Plaschke, Joseph Krementz and Ferdinand G. Walker. Lotick studied at the School of the Art Institute in Chicago and was a commercial artist for the Indianapolis Star. Paintings by him were shown recently in the Artists of the Wonderland Way show at the Carnegie Center for Art and History in New Albany.
