After three years of dominating our Top 10, Joey Monsoon has been unseated by Laura Alexander for the title of Best Local Artist of 2011.

Laura’s work is easily recognizable, a unique presentation of cut white paper and etched glass that casts shadows that add contrast and depth to her displays. Her work is presented in a straightforward fashion that is full of ornate detail upon closer inspection.

One of Laura’s big accomplishments in 2011 was taking home 7th place in the nationally recognized ArtPrize in Grand Rapids, Michigan, a competition that over 1500 artists entered.

    Congratulations, Laura! Finally they’ve given this award to someone who deserves it. You already know that you’re my favorite artist in Columbus, I’m so glad the rest of the town feels the same way. PS… I’ll drop the championship belt off at your place sometime this week.

    Kudos to Laura A. this year for extreme dedication to a single piece that goit her a long way. May the next year be just as fruitful for  you.

    Super stoked to have made the list again this year along with such great company. One of these years I’m really gonna have to bust some butt and get out of that always a groomsman and never a groom zone! lol
