Multi -Award Winning Laura I. Art Gallery is thrilled to announce the gallery’s third solo exhibition of the year, THE POWER OF THINGS, Drip: Still Lifes which present a collection of spiritual and charismatic paintings by Degard.

Laura I. Art Gallery presents a collection of artworks by Degard which will take us into an immersive experience of discovery where artworks will be presented not only to re-evaluate our values—to elevate everyday objects but also, and more importantly, to let us sense the dimension out of which objects emerge, and to invest them with a magical quality that has the power of drawing us into their radiance and power.
