Joan Laughlin has lived in Houston for most of her life. Her work is inspired by the natural world that grows in and around the concrete, urban, ever-changing Houston landscape. This particular body of work focuses on tree scars. They are contemplations on the poem by Rumi and the song by Leonard Cohen that refer to metaphorical wounds as the way that enlightenment might enter our lives. It is often through loss or pain that we are able to see things differently, that we become wise. She is represented by Archway Gallery. (www.archwaygallery.com).
All exhibitions are free and open to the public Monday - Saturday 9 AM - 5 PM.
