The public is invited to attend a reception for the exhibit “elemental,” which will be held tomorrow, Aug. 22, 5:30-7:30 p.m. in the James S. Murray Gallery. The exhibit features mixed media paintings by Laura Anderson, LLCC assistant professor of art, and is on display weekdays from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. through Sept. 12.
Anderson’s work is inspired by the natural world, including its complexities, commonalities, mysteries and working processes. “We are part of nature, yet we’re set apart from it in many ways,” she explains. “My work explores the intersection of this duality, often via drawn or painted natural imagery combined with collaged artifacts and urban landscapes that reflect the man-made world.
