Lori Gordon

Lori Gordon, mixed media artist and writer, grew up in the Northern Plains. Largely self taught, Gordon works in many medias including graphite, acrylic, handmade paper, fabric and polymer clay. Her work may be found in galleries along the Gulf Coast, in museums in South Dakota, and in public and private collections around the country. Recently, one of her pieces was acquired by the Smithsonian Institution for inclusion into their permanent collection. In 2003 Gordon began capturing the local landscapes of her beloved Mississippi Gulf Coast in acrylic, and continued that work until Hurricane Katrina upended her life on August 29, 2005. With her home, studio and all of her supplies washed away by the 35 foot storm surge and 150 mile per hour winds which obliterated her community, Gordon returned to work using the only materials which were available to her. Gordon began collecting rubble and transforming it into works of art. “The Katrina Collection” is the name she has given to this new series of mixed media collages and assemblages. The series first garnered national attention when MSNBC.COM featured the work in their series “Rising From Ruin.” National Public Radio featured The Katrina Collection on their program "All Things Considered", Habitat for the Humanities commissioned a Gordon retablo for Rosalyn and Jimmie Carter and The American Red Cross commissioned a piece to thank Faith Hill for all her work with the recovery from Katrina. Lori's work is now in the collection of President Obama.
