Conspiracy of Beauty: Laura Schenck’s Photography

Edge of Night by Laura Schenck

Laura Schenck shows her photographs at Allina Clinic through December 8.  Intrigued with how one’s perception of an object or surface changes when it is photographed at a close range, Laura literally and figuratively focuses on “the seemingly unremarkable, sometimes ugly leavings of everyday life:  rust and grime, deposits and spills, mildew and decay,” to reveal “the art in accident and the ubiquity of beauty.”  Laura prints her images on canvas to create a painterly effect.

This gallery is managed by the Northfield Arts Guild and is located near the lab waiting area at Allina Medical Clinic of Northfield at 1440 Jefferson Road.  Regular Clinic Hours are 7 am to 8 pm Monday through Thursday, 7 am to 7 pm Fridays, and 9 am to 3 pm Saturdays.
