The Minnesota Women’s Building Partnership and WARM are pleased to invite you to an exhibition of works by WARM members Emily Gray Koehler and Laura Pereira.
From Emily Gray Koehler
After earning a B.F.A. in printmaking from Grand Valley State University, my work has largely focused on humanity’s place in the environment. Seeking to develop a dialogue between the viewer and the natural world, I investigate the places I call home: North Woods and Great Plains, Farm and City, Michigan and Minnesota.
From Laura Pereira
I grew up amidst the hustle and bustle of Chicago and spent summers in the quiet of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Drawing from these disparate environments, my work explores conceptions of what is natural. Philosophical questions propel much of my art, particularly Thoreau’s ideas about the role of imagination in experience.
