Laura Nugent is one of three artists featured in the August exhibition "On the Surface" at JRB Art at Elms Gallery in Oklahoma City. Sixteen new works in Laura's "Undiscovered Countries" series are on display in the gallery's Beaux Arts Room through August 28, 2017. The exhibition will open with a reception from 6:00 - 10:00 PM on August 4th during Paseo Arts Districts's First Friday Gallery Walk. JRB's Gallery Director, Joy Reed Belt, says the show "will feature three very skilled artists whose work often appears to the casual eye to be different than it does under closer scrutiny. Artists Larry Hefner, Behnaz Sohrabian and Laura Nugent will all be present at the opening reception which is free and open to the public."

Laura Nugent is showing new and recent works at The Late Show on June 2, 2017. This display includes larger acrylic on canvas paintings and smaller framed works from her "Undiscovered Countries" series. Laura’s exhibit was scheduled and curated by Tom Deatherage, the longtime proprietor of The Late Show, who passed away on May 16.
This First Friday event is one of note. “Tom’s impact on the emerging artists of Kansas City deserves to be recognized,” Laura writes. “It is a sad time for his closest friends and family. Above all, his message to those of us he represented at The Late Show, is ‘the show must go on.’ It is in that spirit that we open its doors for one of the last times.”
The opening hours are 6 PM - 9 PM on June 2nd.
