For the art auction, Laurie created: An Adirondack Garden
This is what she had to say about her creation:
“Why do we have to limit ourselves to what a chair is, it’s design or function? By taking this Adirondack chair – a classic outdoor garden décor object – disassembling and repurposing it – it now becomes a garden unto itself and an homage to a blossoming floral environment.”
An Adirondack Garden is on display at Hang Ups Creative Picture Framing, 24 St Andrew Street, Brockville, until April 13th.
