On August 13, 2019, it will be  a year since Laura Spong passed, and if ART Gallery will mark the date with an exhibition of her work, a reception to toast Laura and her legacy and an open mic evening during which her friends, family, collectors and others are invited to share their stories about and memories of Laura. The exhibition will contain selection of some of if ART Gallery owner Wim Roefs' favorite works by Laura. 

REMEMBERING LAURA SPONG: THE LIVE RECORDINGS. In the evening of August 13, 2019, friends, family and acquaintances of Laura Spong gathered at if ART Gallery to share stories about and memories of Laura, who passed away a year earlier, August 13, 2018. Steve Hait taped the proceedings, for which we are very grateful. It was a lovely evening with lovely stories; thanks to everyone who came out. HERE is a link to the recording.
