Opening Reception: Laurie Carnohan, "Converge"

Richmond artist, Laurie Carnohan will exhibit new work in The Mezzanine at Quirk Hotel beginning February 28 through April 21. An opening reception will be held in The Mezzanine on Thursday, February 28 from 5-8 pm.

Converge is an incomplete survey of worlds colliding; simple discoveries gleaned from the environment; a grey misty day, leaves aflutter in the street, both graffiti and vine on the side of a building, or ripples in a puddle. Bit by bit ephemera fills my brain and my iPhone, until, in an assemblage of printed images, it is indissoluble on paper. I collect, construct and hand-print images created years ago or perhaps a few days ago. Fragments, remnants, memories and moments are layered, captured and encapsulated by printmaking.

Laurie Carnohan is a Richmond, Virginia native, printmaker and mixed media artist who holds degrees in Criminal Justice, Communication Arts and Printmaking. She studied with, and worked under, Barbara Tisserat in Lithography at Virginia Commonwealth University. For eight years, Laurie served on the Board of Studio Two Three, a nonprofit community print and art space. She was a member of the Virginia-based ONE/OFF Printmakers Group and exhibits her work locally, nationally and internationally. Laurie has previously exhibited her work in Quirk's Archives collection and in a 2012 solo show in The Vault.
