Laquita Thomson: Taking Flight

Artist Laquita Thomson is inspired by the aerial aspects of nature and man’s ever-evolving relationship to the skies. This exhibition features a major, multi-panel monotype titled Crop Duster (2017) that captures the intersection of rural life and the modern mechanics of flight. Other works in the installation are collographs with imagery that suggests the beauty of light and flying creatures including butterflies and lightning bugs.
