Christina Laurel's "Emergent: a lily pad installation" art exhibit is now on display in Granberry Gallery at Limestone College.

The exhibit will run through Friday, October 20.

"The lily pad is a living entity with roots that are submerged in the earth, but its growth propels it through water to emerge into the air above. It is a motif ripe with symbolism,” Laurel said. “This exhibit transforms the space into an oasis of respite from our daily sensory bombardment. Both the horizontal format and the properties of a lily pond are inherently calming.”
