2017 is already loaded with activity down here at Laura Nugent Studio. I say "down here" as I happily celebrate 13 years working out of my lower level, home studio in Merriam, Kansas. While it is a little crowded wth new works in progress, I do still enjoy the ability to roll out of slumber, wander outside with dear Deacon and then get right to work. Currently, I am making work for my upcoming solo exhibition at Lowe Mill Arts Center in Huntsville, AL. The ongoing, small works series "Undiscovered Countries" is also in progress and evolving. You will soon find them available online at Artful Home. If you prefer in-person shopping in the US, don't forget Roan and Black Contemporary and The Arts Company, both lovely galleries handling my original work. The tough-as-nails Late Show Gallery in Kansas City periodically stocks my work, both new and vintage.
As I've been working this month, a crew from KCPT Arts Upload has been documenting my work process. It has been a fascinating experience so far. I have been surprised at how quickly I forget that I am not alone in my studio. Fortunately, painting still draws me in and holds my attention like nothing else and there have been moments when I have broken concentration and been surprised to see the television lights and camera lens nearby. Look for the finished segment in February - you know I will be posting a link here!
And while you are visiting today, please check out the new Events tab featuring where and when you'll find my work in the days ahead. I hope to see you.
