About the artist
Laura Garramone is a pastel artist from Greene County New York. She has been a lifetime resident of southern Albany County and more recently Greene County. Her work is intimately connected to her home and surrounding areas. Laura loves the beauty of upstate New York and is constantly searching for the next subject for her paintings. She is never disappointed with the vast amount of fantastic vistas here. Inspiration comes from nature and every day beauty. Laura has worked in acrylics, watercolor and charcoal, but fell in love with the immediacy and pure color of pastels. She has been working in pastels exclusively since 2008.
Laura is mostly self-taught, as are all artists, she says. The journey of art exploration is a personal one. Everyone experiences and develops themselves as artists differently. No matter how many workshops or formal training an artist receives, they in the end emerge with their own artistic style and personal flare. Laura believes that she is still immersed in her personal artistic journey and is enjoying every second of it. The advice she would give to artists just beginning their journeys would be not to give up on your art. No matter what life throws at you keep painting, sketching, imagining and seeing.
Many people are surprised to learn there is a beautiful art gallery located in Historic St. Agnes Cemetery. It is a bit different to say the least. The Gallery serves as a means for local artists to exhibit and sell their work. The museum quality tracks and cables are strong and secure, offering a safe and attractive means to display art.
