Laura Cannamela will present “Harmonic Nature,” featuring her art, at the North Chatham Free Library on Sunday, September 18 at 3:00pm. She finds inspiration by observing the Kinderhook Creek and patterns in nature. She will show her work and discuss some of her art historical and geological sources, such as Japanese illustrations, ancient Chinese scholars’ rocks, and the glacially carved gorge in Valatie where she lives. She will also explain the ceramic and paper techniques she uses to interpret natural patterns.
Laura Cannamela received her MFA in Painting from Queens College of CUNY before moving to the Hudson Valley area. Her artwork has been featured in numerous exhibitions at galleries in New York and New England. Her ceramic sculpture was entered into the permanent art collection of the Samuel Dorsky Museum at SUNY New Paltz. She was a Platte Clove Artist-In-Residence and has received grants from the New York Foundation for the Arts and Martha Boschen Porter Fund of the Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation.
