Laurie Bogdan bird collageArlington artist Laurie Bogdan brings her mixed-media collages to three locales this summer, and she asks the public to visit and see her bird art:

  • Saturday, July 16, from 11 to 5, at ArtBeat in Davis Square – a street fair with more than 65 artists, plus music and food;
  • From Aug. 1 through 30, at the Weston Public Library Gallery; and
  •  Saturday, Sept. 17, from 10 to 4, at Town Day, during Art on the Green at Whittemore Park.

Bogdan told YourArlington that her collages are created from vintage maps, books, paper and games in combination with a variety of reused materials and objects.

'Beyond GPS'

“Audubon images are a favorite of mine,” she wrote. “I find myself looking at ordinary images in a whole new way, seeing color and texture. I like to think beyond the GPS. 

“In a world where many ordinary objects and books are tossed away or not appreciated it’s nice to find a way to reimagine and bring new life to them,” she wrote. “My focus in this past year has been to use a variety of these materials to create public art. I enjoy collaborating with fellow artists with complimentary skills. This allows me to stretch my imagination.” 

She volunteer with ArtLinks Arlington, a local networking group, and Arts Arlington.
