September 25th – October 30th
2021 Fall Show Judge Holly Laws
Holly Laws is a sculptor who makes objects and multimedia installations. Her approach is informed by a love of experimentation with all manner of materials and processes. She employs labor-intensive and time-consuming techniques that are often associated with craft, a specific trade, or women’s work, as opposed to fine art. Laws received a BFA in Sculpture from Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, and an MFA in Sculpture from Tyler School of Art, Temple University in Philadelphia. She moved to Arkansas in 2008 for a faculty position at the University of Central Arkansas, and currently teaches classes in Three-Dimensional Design, Contemporary Media, and Sculpture. She lives in Mayflower with her two cats, and seven chickens, including Beatrice, pictured above.
