Laura Sue King – Flower Targets Artist Talk

June 15 @ 1:00 pm 2:00 pm

The Roxbury Arts Group is happy to announce an Artist Talk with Laura Sue King on her current solo show at the Roxbury Arts Center, Flower TargetsFlower Targets includes acrylic paintings on canvas and wood, and watercolor paintings on paper. The artist talk will take place at the Roxbury Arts Center at 1pm on Saturday, June 15. Be sure to come out to get further in-person insight on these wonderful works. The show is viewable from May 11 through July 6.

Laura Sue King was born in 1962 in Santa Barbara, California to a feminist schoolteacher and a hippie potter. Her focus on how we experience color in painting began as a graduate student in the renowned Hunter College Color School. King has exhibited in Argentina, China, Germany, Mauritius, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Great Britain, and the United States. She has been honored both as an artist and educator, receiving an AIM award from the Bronx Museum of the Arts, an international printmaking residency from the Mahatma Gandhi Institute on the island of Mauritius, and grants from Hunter College, the New School, and the State of New York. King teaches undergraduate studio art at Hunter College, where she has been an adjunct professor for thirty years. She lives full-time in Fleischmanns, NY with her partner and their two dogs.

As King writes, “my paintings are first about color. Knowledge of scientific and theoretical systems help me to feel a little more in control of what I’m doing in the studio, but this information doesn’t make good paintings. While choosing color is my focus as I begin each painting, it is surely the experience of color rather than the actual color that motivates me.”
