Krystl Louwagie Exhibition

“Selfie Exploration”

March 2021 | The Cultural Centre | Cartooning

Artist Reception will be held Sunday, March 14th, 2021 from 1-3P.M.

Portraits, especially self-portraits, have been dominating Louwagie’s artistic work for the better part of the last fifteen years. She experiments within 2-d visual mediums, but in subject matter works with figures and portraits that call forth narratives. She does this through a variety of forms ranging from simple line comics to more complex portraits focusing on linework, shape and pattern. Her bold lines and narrative qualities are often reminiscent of what drew her to art even as a child: illustrated fairy-tale book and super-hero comics.

Krystl Louwagie, a graduate of Hamline University with a liberal arts degree in Studio Art, is now the marketing coordinator for the Southwest Minnesota Art Council.
