2018 exhibitions:

- The New Texas Talent exhibition in Dallas accepted one of my wood wall sculptures in their annual summer exhibition. I was very excited to have been juried into this exhibit.
- I had several artworks in the exhibition, "I Found You" at Link and Pin Gallery in July. It was a group exhibition of artworks utilizing found and recycled materials.
- I had 3 pieces in the Texas Society of Sculptors exhibit at the Georgetown Library. The exhibit was up for much of the summer and September.

Places you can find my artwork (without me):
Gallery Locations:

I have an artwork showing at the People's Gallery at Austin City Hall which will be up until Jan. 2019. It is on the 2nd floor near the end of the west hallway. Please visit at your convenience. This exhibit is always very interesting and diverse.

Art Connections Gallery, formerly in Bastrop, has moved to LaGrange, TX. They have a selection of my jewelry as well as some of my metal wall art.

The Old Bakery Emporium has my ‘Austin music’ T-shirts as well as a selection of earrings.1006 Congress Ave, Austin

Outdoor Sculpture Locations:

I have my larger outdoor sculptures at several public art locations where they will be shown for a year.

I recently installed my Cheshire Cat sculpture in a tree in front of the public library in downtown Round Rock.

Two of my sculptures are in the Cedar Park Sculpture Garden and will be up through sometime in October 2019.

Three pieces are in Jewett, TX as part of the Leon County Art Trails.

Three sculptures are in Palestine, TX as part of Art Tracks.

In Bastrop, are 2 transformer boxes that I painted summer of 2017. They are located by the movie theatre. You can see them by entering the parking lot and drive toward the back of the movie theatre on the east side toward Farm St.

An interesting thing that I found out a few years ago is that I have several ancestors who were metal workers. I have always considered myself primarily a sculptor, although I created mostly 2-D art for a while.  I worked in clay for a number of years and then started migrating to metal.  I enjoy what it can do.  Now that I found out there were 2 tinsmiths, a blacksmith, and also a tailor in my ancestry (I’ve been doing a metal quilt series), it seems that I’m following a path that was set in motion a while back. (?)  I wonder what kind of things they made.

I am always struggling to add to Facebook ....my first art page is:  https://www.facebook.com/TwinCreekStudio.Laura-Sturtz/
