Adjunct Professorial Lecturer
Department of Art
Magnolia Laurie received her BA in Critical Social Thought from Mount Holyoke College and her MFA from the Mount Royal School of Art at the Maryland Institute College of Art. Her work is based on painting, yet draws on installation, sculpture, and animation to question the creative process, the history of painting, and the instinctive, sometime desperate human act of building. Laurie has been awarded fellowships and residencies from the Vermont Studio Center, the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, So Hamiltonian Fellows, the Creative Alliance in Baltimore, and the Jentel Foundation in Wyoming. Her recent exhibitions include: what could hold us together at frosch & portmann in NY, with a tug and a hold at VisArts in MD, The Big Reveal at the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art, Kansas City, MO and the WPA’s Options 13 at the Arlington Arts Center in VA.
