Dry Streambed by Laura Andrews

Laura Andrews ’06, MFA, has art in the Banfill-Locke Center for the Arts exhibition Heart of a Place. Andrews’s work is a contemporary meditation on the natural world, as she often paints in Lebanon Hills Regional Park in Dakota County and in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area near Ely, Minnesota.

Andrews tells ABC Newspaper, “When painting on site, I use some of the language of landscape painting to describe the volume of space before me, but I also react to changes in time of day, light, water, weather, season. This push and pull gives the paintings their own experiential quality. They aren’t copies of nature but their own evocation of place. This encourages viewers to see and experience their own places and spaces in new ways.”
