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

Laura Cavanagh is a two-dimensional multimedia artist who lives and works in Southeast Michigan.

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

Featured in this show is a body of work that Cavanagh makes up his “Queenies”. Queenies draw inspiration from medieval, renaissance and 18th/19th century portrait painting.

She includes found vintage papers and other ephemera in her intricate designs to incorporate more elements from the past as well as add her own innate curiosity and sense of humor. Each Queenie’s face is, in many ways, a portrait of Cavanagh and her different moods, emotions and general spirit on any given day.
