Featured Community Artist – Laura Barrett

Our community is proud to feature works by our local artists.

Our first featured artist is Laura Barrett.

Laura graduated from ACAD in 2005 with a degree in fine arts.
Her most recent pieces are created on wood using a 3 tone palette. Wood cutting creates the white, pyrography (wood burning) creates the black, and the natural wood grain creates the mid-tone. Currently, she concentrates on portraits of animals and people.

She has previously displayed at the Calgary Central Library, Ironwood, Blues Can, Winos, Pages, cSPACE King Edward, the Epcor Centre, and will be at the Central Library July 2020.

Her work can be viewed at www.xpozezstudios.com and on Instagram @xpozezstudios
