Laura Spong at 90

Episode 1: Brooke talks with Wim Roefs of the if ART Gallery in Columbia, South Carolina about the Laura Spong at 90 exhibition.

Ninety year old abstract expressionist Laura Spong was doing her art in South Carolina for many years before people “got it.”  She says “It’s mostly just putting it on the canvas and then reacting.  The first line I put up, I react to that to do another line, so it builds itself in that way.  It’s frustrating, because it almost feels like you don’t have any control over the creativity.”

Not one to put on airs, Spong doesn’t pontificate about the meaning or importance of her work, but her resume speaks for itself. She has been featured at Charleston’s Spoleto Arts Festival, the Greenville County Museum of Art, the South Carolina State Museum, Charleston’s Smith Killian Fine Art, as well as on the set of the Lifetime television show Drop Dead Diva.
