Laura Cater-Woods

The Elements: Abstracting from Nature

September 17, 18, 19, 2021 (Friday – Sunday)

About Laura:  Laura is a working studio artist with an extensive international exhibition record and numerous awards. Her mixed media and fiber art work is held in international public, private and corporate collections.

After completing an M.F.A. in Painting (Ohio University, 1990) she began to integrate her love of fabric and thread with her approach to drawing and painting. Her images explore the textures and rhythms of details from the landscape, often interwoven with eccentric grids. These days she is expanding into working with found line, using natural objects as her medium, instead of simply her inspiration.


The Workshop

Nebula, detail

Working with sets of opposites – visual as well as conceptual – participants develop a composition using the elements: Earth, Air, Fire and Water, as inspiration. Using a variety of approaches, students are encouraged to tap into their personal creative voice. The expressive designs evoked are then translated into your medium of choice. Instruction is highly personalized.
