EXHIBIT OPENING & RECEPTION
FRIDAY, AUGUST 1, 6 – 8 PM
HALLWAY GALLERY at FACC
Laura is a Fairfield artist “who allows the creative energy of life to dance through her onto the canvas”. Laura’s interest in art began early, nurtured by classes at The Art Institute of Pittsburgh, and then at college art education classes. After graduation she studied at the Toledo Museum of Art, and when living in Chicago, she took neighborhood art classes, all the time exploring different media, like drawing, watercolor, oil, tissue paper collage, acrylic, and mixed media.
When she, along with her husband and two children, moved to Fairfield, Iowa, where she currently resides, she continued to experiment with different media while creating many art pieces.
After she was diagnosed with and treated for cancer, she re-evaluated her life and decided to once again take local art classes and share her creative talents with the world. Her teacher encouraged her to continue to explore and express her inner creativity and hosted her first exhibit. Since then, Laura has been exhibiting, selling, and sharing her art with others. Laura currently favors acrylic paint on either primed or unprimed canvas. She has won first and third place at regional Iowa Artists Shows, as well as a Gallery Pick Award.
You will find Laura’s “Flowers” exhibit in the FAA Hallway Gallery through October.
