Laura Mongiovi, associate professor of art at Flagler College, will present a meet and greet art lecture at the Plum Gallery in St. Augustine on Sept. 14, 2011.
Plum Gallery founder, Karen Sheridan, is excited to host this informational talk by an artist she respects.
“Laura’s work is in response to the motivation behind a culture’s need to construct space and objects,” said Sheridan. “The mental, physical and sensual desire to produce space and objects influence her work.”
“I am interested in raising questions, piquing curiosity and revealing stories about sensual perception,” said Mongiovi. “The repetition of stitching and tasks such as cutting, piercing, tying and staining are significant because the resulting visual qualities elicit sensual memories. The memories I am exploring range from desire and comfort to exposure and fear.”
The lecture, which will be held from 7-8 p.m. at the Plum Gallery at 9 Aviles St., will also feature light refreshments featuring Bonnie Jones’ Tasty Treats and St. Augustine’s own Mile Marker Brewery’s latest release will be served. - source is Flagler College News, link here.
