Featured Resident Artist, Laura Paine Carr
Ralph Broussard – I have always strived to create work that falls in the category of simple elegance. Through my pottery, I create shapes that are mostly feminine. I decorate these pieces with delicate images from nature such as a dragonfly. The combination of pleasing color, soft elegant shape, and the dragonfly, pulls the viewer into my creative intent.
Adam Wolpert – I believe we are all able to recognize beauty if given the chance. It is our birthright. Any child will marvel at a flower, even if it is a dandelion growing up through concrete or the intricate powdered miracle of a green beetle scurrying across a vacant lot. Beauty only asks for our attention and then, when we sit at her feet, we are given the gift of a pause. We are ushered into stillness and we reflect. We naturally become relaxed and introspective. Beauty leads us to our conscience and reminds us of everything we most need to remember. It affirms our full participation even as it humbles and tempers us.
Laura Paine Carr – My current series, acrylic on HDL board, is a contemplation of change: Change of mind, of medium, of perspective. Contemporary life seems to move at an overwhelming pace. Often I work from Nature as subject matter, allowing the soul/sound/color of an object or landscape expression through abstraction. In this process I am able to translate a deeper understanding of reality into visual language.
