Exhibition of work by Lauren Scavo



August 12 – September 9, 2017

Artist Reception: Saturday, September 9th, 6-8pm




Lauren Scavo’s atmospheric, expressive landscape drawings are extremely intimate. She sees landscape as being both universal and personal. “They are intertwined in both individual lives and collective histories, and are historically and culturally relevant in the art community and in the larger world. Though they are constantly changing, they are ever-present.” She considers phenomenology, connections between human consciousness and its surrounding environment, and the way in which our sensory experience of a place influences our subjective interpretation of it, while creating her drawings. She will be presenting a solo exhibition of her new work in Sweetwater’s gallery as the winner of our summer solo show program.


Lauren is an MFA Candidate in Drawing at Indiana University of Pennsylvania. She received her undergraduate degree in Drawing/Painting and English from Grace College in Winona Lake, IN.
