She has been a solo exhibitor at The Anchorage Museum, The International Gallery of Contemporary Art and the Clausen Museum, all centers in Alaska. Lohr was also a recipient of the Rasmuson Foundation Individual Artist Award in 2012.
Through the use of interior house paint and hardware store paint swatches from True Value Paint, Lohr studies color, culture and consumerism. She uses True Value's name schemes to create her systems for making work and is interested is the absurdity that is present when a color and a name are matched together. Parody is important to Lohr along with the audiences sensory experience work the work.
Lohr's intention is to make both rational and irrational artwork that practices consumerism and references generalized ideas from American culture through the contemporary color for the home.
