Secrets that Bind

Artist Cathy McLaurin from Lawrence, Mass., is breaking new ground with her art as she reaches out to others while maintaining an artist's focus on the visual. I first met Cathy when she was bringing her "Secrets" installation to North Carolina. Check it out at Since then Cathy has related to me some of the provocative responses it has created. While there are other artists working in similar direction, Cathy's works maintains a raw honesty that comes from a place of caring. Cathy has recently conducted a residency in Texas where she worked with teenage single mothers. I look forward to seeing more on this project when it is posted on her site.
