Friends School of Minnesota art teacher Laura Pereira is a 2013 Minnesota State Arts Board grantee. This grant will allow Laura to spend her summer doing entomological research and encaustic painting.

An exhibition of the work will follow, most likely sometime in November.

“Project grants for artists at all stages of their careers, to support artistic development, nurture artistic creativity, and recognize the contributions individual artists make to the creative environment of the state of Minnesota.” Minnesota State Arts Board
