Magnolia W Laurie Associate Professor of Art



Magnolia Laurie’s paintings reference the conflicting visual vocabulary that marks the land we live on and utilize— landmarks of protection, destruction, progress, and waste. Laurie’s work has been exhibited in solo shows at frosch & portmann, NY, the Phillips Museum of Art, PA, Hamiltonian Gallery, DC and group exhibitions at MONO Practice, MD, the Kemper Art Museum, MO, and the Baltimore Museum of Art, MD, among other venues. She has participated in residencies across the United States including at Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, VA, the Vermont Studio Center, VT, and the Jentel Foundation in WY. Laurie has received grants from Maryland State Arts Council Grants, the Belle Foundation, and the Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation.
