Laura Kreischer Manes: Essence of Color

March-July, Public hours

Laura Kreischer Manes is a Fort Wayne based artist who emphasizes the movement of color as her own signature style. Laura has always had an eye for detail, though one day, she began creating with acrylic pour where it is necessary to go “outside the box.” Painting with this technique became a pivotal moment in her work as someone who never colored outside the lines. To her surprise, it was fun! Today, Laura specializes in acrylic pour while using expressive color themes to offer serenity and challenge viewers to their own affections. She continues to be inspired by the world and the beautiful colors that paint it.
