Laura Scott Steiger to Talk about her art career and the Triptych Federation, a Global Arts Non-Profit Community
Laura Scott Steiger is an International fine artist, muralist, illustrator, graphic designer, educator, and co-founder of the Triptych Federation. She is inspired by traveling, and seeking out moments of contemplative immersion, whether in the natural world or with the people she meets. Motivated by these moments, Laura creates work that she hopes invites the viewer to go on the adventure with her.
Triptych Federation is a Global Arts Non-Profit Community providing grants, webinars, workshops & tutorials as well as exhibition and networking opportunities for students and early to mid-career artists of ALL KINDS! (https://www.facebook.com/TriptychFederation/).
The Federation is a newly formed virtual (and eventually physical) space where creatives of ALL kinds can come together to share their passions, as well as learn from others and showcase what drives them. It wants to promote, encourage, inspire and connect artists!
Each week, the Triptych Federation posts their Artist Spotlight to promote artists from various disciplines to showcase their work. You can see these posts on its Instagram and Facebook pages (https://www.facebook.com/TriptychFederation and https://www.instagram.com/TriptychFederation/ . Triptych Federation’s Co-Founder, Sara Howells, also provides Noontime Knowledge for the Jewish Cultural Center of Reading on various Tuesdays at their Community Center, free and open to the public.
The Triptych Federation’s future includes offering small grants and virtual content such as exhibitions, professional development webinars, courses for creators, studio seminars, grant writing and application tips, and crits. As it grows and expands, it will also offer membership perks such as a research library, more exhibition opportunities, exclusive content and meet ups. The ultimate goal is a physical arts center where they will host events, have gallery space, studio spaces, workshops, dance hall, concert hall, and educational space.
Prior to co-founding the Triptych Federation, Laura worked in sales at LiliBea’s, Curious on the Avenue, and Hello Bluebird, as well as graphic design for Taste Buds and managing the Cafés Harmony and Bold in West Reading, all while being a professional fine artist, illustrator and muralist. She has a B.F.A. from Kutztown University where she focused on Studio Drawing and minoring in Fiber Arts, Weaving.
