Featured Artist - Laura Corben
Laura Corben is a very talented artist who captures diversity in oil and acrylic. From pears, to paths, to painted buses, I find her subjects endless and visually entertaining.
"I have always drawn and painted, making sketchbooks over several years of world travel. I have painted with oil, watercolor, and acrylics. Currently I am working primarily in acrylic, informed by both oil and watercolor techniques. I especially like what I call want sabi, making interesting backgrounds for small 6x6 studies of fruits, vegetables, ferns, mushrooms, things in nature. For this exhibit, I will be displaying three paintings that reflect my lifelong association with Wavy Gravy and Hog Farm. It was working summers at Camp Winnarainbow 25 years ago that eventually brought me to live full time in Mendocino County."
