Laura Brown has been making prints ever since a professor put a carving tool and wood block in her hands. In recent years, she has been learning to make paper, use a letterpress, and other book arts processes.

Laura has worked in studios all over the United States and Europe. Her work has been shown in local, national, and international galleries and, in 2010, a piece was commissioned by Twin Cities Metro magazine for publication. In 2010 she was an artist-in-residence at the Minnesota Center for Book Arts. The book she created there, Poems + Prints, is housed in the special collections of the Hennepin County Library. In late winter of 2012, she produced a new book, The Great Lakes of North America, while in residence at the Women’s Studio Workshop in Rosendale, New York.

Laura lives in northeast Minneapolis and makes work at the Minnesota Center for Book Arts.

The CCCAC is at 126 Quincy Street, Hancock. Call 482-2333 for more information.
