The Coast Collective Team

Laura Rechwan – Art Gallery & Special Projects Coordinator -


Laura Rechwan is interested in the transformative power of the arts and the positive impact the arts can have, especially on the lives of youth.  Laura has been involved for a number of years with facilitating interactive arts activities in the community for all ages,  at various events such as the Rotary Art & Wine festival, BC Day Performing Arts Festival, and more. Laura has been involved with the Coast Collective since 2012 as a gallery artist. Her ambition for creating opportunities and engaging youth in the community arts scene has led to her joining the Coast Collective’s management team in 2015.


Laura is an honour’s graduate student of Camosun College’s two year studio-intensive Visual Arts program. Her love for the natural world and fascination with human connection is often her inspiration for her art practice. She is a multi-disciplinary artist working with concepts combining physical reality with tangible surrounding energies, most often executing these concepts through immersive sculpture and installation environments. Her work employs a variety of media and working process, with a predominate focus on ceramics and video/performance art.
