Laura Shabott is part of a core group of artists whose presence and practices - whether visual, literary or performance - insures the continuance of Provincetown as a vital arts colony. Her artistic path in the past thirty years has been circuitous, instinctual and diverse. In 2015, Shabott returned to painting and drawing as if coming home from a long journey. She is represented by Four Eleven Gallery in Provincetown.
Emily Mergel writes in Artscope Magazine "Shabott continually draws inspiration from abstract expressionist Hans Hofmann and breaks forms into their most evocative essentials...She seizes the opportunity to burst the gallery walls, speaking with intentional gesture in visual vocabulary all her own."
A teaching artist at the Provincetown Art Association and Museum and the Cape Cod Museum of Art, she works with adults who want to begin or begin again.
