There is still time to view the art exhibit “elemental,” featuring mixed media paintings by Laura Anderson, LLCC assistant professor of art, in LLCC’s James S. Murray Gallery through Sept. 12. The public is invited to view the exhibit weekdays from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
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.”
