Coral Springs Museum of Art Visual Whispers Exhibition
Coral Spring, FL – The Coral Springs Museum of Art will be presenting “Visual Whispers,” The first solo exhibition of Jessie Laura, Visual Whispers, presents site-specific installations and a series of assemblages that explore the notions of dimensional space and perception. The work navigates the complexities of light and form as an artistic medium, physical reality, and aesthetic concept.
Influenced by nature and architectural structures, Laura’s mixed media work features geometric and organic compositions that create volume, texture, and movement. Furthermore, abstraction through form, light, and shadow allows her to respond to and engage with contemporary culture’s onslaught of visual imagery.
Stripped from color and representational imagery, Visual Whispers gives the viewer the opportunity to engage with the work with heightened focus and a higher awareness of their presence in the space.
Mark your calendars as Jessie Laura will be flying out for a limited time to attend the Visual Whispers Opening Reception and Ask the Artist. Visitors can interact with her and ask questions during this event. Dates for additional programming in conjunction with this exhibition will be forthcoming on our website and social media channels.

ABOUT THE MUSEUM
What began late in 1996 as a City project to build a comprehensive recreation and community center, soon turned into The Coral Springs Center for the Arts – a performance theater and art museum. Housed in the impressive 30,000 square foot center for the arts building is the equally impressive Coral Springs Museum of Art which was incorporated in January of 1997.
