Jasper- Jasper Community Arts, along with Dubois County Tourism and Heart of Jasper have announced the unveiling of two Jasper murals.
With the assistance of a grant from IDDC, the three parties have commissioned a mural at the Jasper River Walk and a second mural for the west wall of the building located at 248 Third Street in Jasper.
The artist selected for this project was professional artist/muralist, Laura Pommier. Laura was originally from Jasper and now resides in Florida.
Pommier holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Murray State University and a master’s in painting from Indiana State University. Her award-winning artwork has been in countless exhibitions and now on buildings and walls. To view Laura’s work, visit her website: www.laurapommier.com.
The mural walls were cleaned and primed at the beginning of August, and Laura has been painting daily since, Friday, August 18th. Laura has worked continuously from sun up to hours past sun down every day for the last month and a half.
The community is welcome to stop by at any time during the painting of the mural to view the creative process.
An Unveiling Reception for the murals, along with a Q&A Reception, will take place on Wednesday, September 27th, starting at the Jasper River Walk’s “River of Dreams” mural.
The public is invited and encouraged to attend both events:
-The Unveiling Reception from 11:00am-12:00pm
-The Q&A Reception from 5:30 – 6:30pmpm
Pommier will join both events to share with us her artistic mural process, along with answering any questions. No reservations required.
