Saint Meinrad Archabbey Library Gallery, St. Meinrad, IN, is hosting an exhibit of tapestries, watercolors and digital prints by Laura Foster Nicholson.

The exhibit will run from June 2 through July 14.

New Harmony, IN, artist Laura Foster Nicholson is known for her handwoven tapestries. With a bachelor's degree in fine arts from Kansas City Art Institute and a master's in fine arts from Cranbrook Academy of Art, she has lectured, taught and exhibited in the United States, Canada and Italy.

Her artwork is in several museum collections, including the Art Institute of Chicago, The Minneapolis Institute of Art and the Denver Art Museum, among others.

In October 2016, she took part in an artist residency at the Bloedel Reserve on Puget Sound, which proved inspirational for this exhibit. The watercolors in this exhibit were executed at that time. These later became the basis for playful digital prints where patterns and color proliferate.

Color, texture, shape and line evoke an interior world of feeling and spirit in the tapestries. These, too, were inspired by the experience of immersion in nature.
