Join us for a two-part virtual workshop led by exhibiting artist Laura Wooten! Wooten's solo exhibition View From The Ridge illustrates the changing seasons of Virginia’s landscape and human connection to the land. Wooten painted over 90 small works for the show, inspired by the daily walks she and her dog took to the same spot every day for a year. Laura Wooten earned her undergraduate degree in Art and Architecture at the University of Virginia and continued at UVA as an Aunspaugh Post-Baccalaureate Fellow in Studio Art. She went on to receive her MFA from American University. Her landscape paintings have been exhibited at the Baltimore Museum of Art and the Biggs Museum of American Art in Dover, Delaware.
