Laura Marsh is a fiber artist with a socially engaged practice. Her banners, weavings, and installations contain feminist and political quotes, mottos, and emblems that reflect cultural values and belief structures. From two generations of women who sew, Marsh practices an accessible and hands-on tactile approach. She invites viewers to enter, touch, and be immersed in the work. Originally from rural, Montrose, Pennsylvania, Marsh has watched her hometown transform into a fracking region. Marsh received her MFA from Yale University School of Art and a BFA from the Cleveland Institute of Art. Marsh has exhibited nationally at venues including Locust Projects in Miami, The Whitney Museum of American Art, Printed Matter, Field Projects, Newman Popiashvili Gallery, and Tilton Gallery in NY. She is the Director of Programs at Oolite Arts.
