Lincoln Economic Development Association Art Invitational 2010 Welcomes New Exhibit

The Lincoln Economic Development Association Art Invitational 2010 is pleased to welcome and exhibit the works of local artist, Laurie Cox Bostian. Laurie brings her gift to the gallery in pieces that bring life to old downtown Lincolnton, as well as, through her signature work, portraiture.

Laurie, born in South Carolina and raised in North Carolina, became passionate about art at the young age of ten. Graduating from Appalachian State University as a Teaching Fellow, Laurie began her career in education. After realizing teaching was not a complete representation of Laurie, she changed her career goals and, “ (I) gradually worked my way to what feels right…art. This time, in my own studio and gallery. I have married my two passions-art and teaching.”

Laurie’s works will be displayed through the end of September. For further information regarding the LEDA Art Invitational 2010, call 704-732-1511 or visit the gallery at 502 E. Main Street in downtown Lincolnton from 8:00am-5:00pm, Monday-Friday. To see more of Laurie Bostian’s work or for more information, please contact her at www.personalartist.com.
