  • Biography

    Laura Wooten is an artist focused on our human connection to the landscape. She earned her undergraduate degree in Art and Architecture at the University of Virginia and continued on at UVA as an Aunspaugh Post-Baccalaureate Fellow in Studio Art before earning her MFA from American University. She attended a summer program in Perugia, Italy, at the Accademia de Belle Arti Pietro Vannucci, where the panoramic Mediterranean landscape took hold of her imagination. Her landscape paintings have been exhibited across the East Coast, including juried exhibitions at the Baltimore Museum of Art, the Biggs Museum of American Art in Dover, Delaware, and the Mosesian Center for the Arts in Boston. Laura has taught painting and drawing at the University of Virginia and Piedmont Community College, and has guest lectured at the University of Virginia School of Architecture. Through a close observation of the natural world, with layers of memory and invention, Laura explores the inner and outer landscape of our experience and how it might be shared. Her collection of Mediterranean Landscape paintings is currently on display at Orzo Kitchen & Wine Bar in Charlottesville, VA.
