Laura Summer is co-founder of Free Columbia with Nathaniel Williams. She has been working with questions of color and contemporary art for the past 30 years, since she completed a painting training at the Atelier House School with Jennifer Thomson. Laura’s approach to color is influenced by Beppe Assenza, Rudolf Steiner, and by Goethe’s color theory. Her work, to be found in private collections in the US and Europe, has been exhibited at the National Museum of Catholic Art and History in New York City and at the Sekem Community in Egypt. She founded two temporary alternative exhibition spaces in Hudson NY: 345 Collaborative Gallery and Raising Matter - this is not a gallery. She has published seven books, four with painting and drawing exercises and three with stories.
