Join us for the closing reception of Don’t Lose Sight by Laura Stevenson on Sunday, July 10th at 12:30pm in the gallery. A brief artist talk will begin at 1:00pm.
Laura Stevenson is an artist and Assistant Professor of Art at Taylor University. She holds a MFA in Painting from the University of New Hampshire and Bachelor’s degree in Studio Art from Taylor. Stevenson has exhibited work throughout the United States and internationally in New Delhi, India. In 2018, Stevenson was accepted by the Nagel Institute at Calvin University to participate in a 2-week art fellowship in China. Following the seminar, artists produced work that is a part of a traveling group exhibition called Matter and Spirit that is continuing to travel throughout the US for the next two years.
Stevenson works in a variety of mediums ranging from painting, printmaking, sculpture, and interactive installations. Her work shows interest in perception and discovering more about what may often appear as unseen in cultures, the news, and our daily lives. As Stevenson works, she thinks about her choice to engage or disengage with people she is surrounded by, both familiar faces and strangers. She asks questions about what it could look like to move toward common ground with one another despite perceived differences in our increasingly polarized society.
