See artist Laura Hunt’s 'Our Community, Our Neighbors' exhibit at TXWES
This event is open to the public

01.25.2022 | By: Texas Wesleyan University

Don’t miss Laura Hunt’s exhibition at the Bernice Coulter Templeton Gallery from Feb. 17 to April 24, 2022.

Fort Worth-based artist Laura Hunt brings the humanity of homelessness to light in her series "Our Community, Our Neighbors" for the benefit of the Tarrant County Homeless Coalition. This collection of portraits of people who have or are currently experiencing homelessness makes a proactive connection between her art and the community issue of living without a place to call home.

Restarting in 2021 after the pandemic, Laura began her process of portraying 26 individuals with 26 stories over 52 weeks. We invite you to join us for the conclusion of this important journey.

Portraits are rendered in a contemporary style using mixed media on wood panels. Please consider becoming a supporter of this project to bring to light the realities of those experiencing homelessness in our community. All portraits will be available for purchase at completion.

You can learn about Hunt’s work at laurahuntart.com.
