February 9, 2012 - Lincoln Memorial University (LMU) alumna Laurel Sprague is currently showing her latest artwork, titled “Antipodean,” inside the DeBusk College of Osteopathic Medicine (LMU-DCOM) building on the LMU main campus in Harrogate, Tenn. The artwork will show through the month of February.

“Antipodean” is a body of work that examines the relationship between the inner and outer existences of human life. It speaks of the conversation between the external world and the internal self. The mixed media artwork combines alternative photographic techniques, medical imagery, clay, fiber and wood. There are five panels varying from three to six feet wide and two to five feet tall.

Sprague grew up in Harrogate, where her parents were professors at LMU. After graduating from Middlesboro (Ky.) High School, she studied at LMU from 1999-2002 before earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Piedmont College. Recently, Sprague completed a Master of Humanities degree with an emphasis in photography and philosophy at Tiffin University. Today she resides north of Knoxville with her husband, David Wolters, with whom she owns a small business called Split River Designs.
