Please join us for an artist lecture by Laura Post on Nov. 1 at 5 pm in room 200, Riley Hall.
Laura Post creates multi-faceted paper sculptures that use traditional print processes to explore how an individual is shaped by their familial network. She earned a B.A. from Swarthmore College in Studio Art and Asian Studies, and an M.F.A. from Rhode Island School of Design in Printmaking. She has a keen interest in traditional tools and working methods as a means to convey contemporary subject matter. In 2015, she apprenticed at Rongbaozhai in Beijing, China, to master traditional Chinese woodblock printing and studied papermaking at Awagami Factory in Tokushima, Japan. Post has demonstrated these processes as a guest artist for workshops and conferences at Harvard University, the University of Pennsylvania, and other institutions.
In 2019, she opened two solo exhibitions in Philadelphia: Laura Post: About Face--Portraits and Prints since 2009 at Swarthmore College's List Gallery and Laura Post: Familial Patterns at CR Ettinger Studio Gallery. Her work has been featured in numerous group exhibitions, including Shanghai International Paper Art Biennale, Shanghai, China; Umbra: New Prints for a Dark Age selected by Alison Saar at International Print Center New York; twice selected for PaperWest: National Works on Paper Juried Exhibition at the University of Utah; The Art of Paper: 7th Annual Juried Exhibition at the University of North Carolina, Pembroke; and Go Figure at Salve Regina University’s Dorrance H. Hamilton Gallery in Newport, RI. She teaches in the creative core department of the Eskenazi School of Art, Architecture, and Design at Indiana University, Bloomington.
