Exhibitions in the Community grew out of the Art Center’s mission of making art more accessible by creating meaningful partnerships with local businesses and organizations. This is the third exhibition in a series with Ringpfeil Advanced Dermatology. About Laura: Laura learned the basic technique of batik from her high school art teacher, Rowena MacPhail, went on to attend several art schools, graduating summa cum laude with a BFA in Art Education and Art History from the College of Fine Arts, Ohio University. She had a successful career as an award winning graphic designer and creative director (working for National Geographic Society and winning awards from AIGA, Print, and more), all the while exhibiting her fine art work. Her batik paintings are unique and have garnered many awards. She also has extensive experience in teaching and continues to do so including in outreach programs.
