PRESS RELEASE: Marie LaPre' Grabon at Korongo Gallery in Randolph

Marie LaPre' Grabon will exhibit her work from April 27- June 3 at Korongo Gallery, 18 Merchants Row in Randolph. Vernissage / Reception:Friday, April 27, from 5 to 7

Over the past thirty years Marie LaPre’ Grabon has exhibited her work in Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and New York. She has had numerous individual exhibitions, the latest to be held at River Arts in Morrisville, Vermont, and Catamount Arts in St. Johnsbury. “I am visually interested in the minutiae of my immediate environment,” Marie says, “but my intent when painting is to seek out the essence of the place—to create a personal language in order to express a pure feeling. As we humans push the land to the brink of disaster I have begun to think of my paintings as small prayers, small pleas to the world to remember, to love.” Marie received her undergraduate degree from Massachusetts College of Art in Boston and a graduate degree in drawing and painting from Goddard College. She continues to maintain her studio in her home in Hardwick, Vermont, where she is currently producing drawings, paintings, and mixed-media works of art.
