‘Meet the Queenies!’ drawing and mixed media exhibit now on display

September 15, 2022  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

Laura Cavanagh is a two-dimensional mixed media artist living and working in Southeast Michigan. 

She works primarily with pen and ink, oil/soft pastels and vintage paper ephemera. 

Presented in this show is a body of work Cavanagh coins her ‘Queenies.’ The Queenies are inspired by medieval, Renaissance and 18th/19th century portrait painting. 

She includes found vintage paper materials and other ephemera into her intricate drawings as a way to further incorporate elements of the past as well as to add her own innate curiosity and sense of humor. The visage of each Queenie is, in many ways, a portrait of Cavanagh, and her varying moods, emotions and general spirit on any given day.
