Event Details

Lara Horoupian runs Laratelier, a popular youth art school out of her studio. She says being around the children she teaches is an unending source of creative inspiration. “I produced 27 paintings during quarantine; sometimes working 5-6 hours daily in my studio. I worked through bursts of feelings like passion, fear, mortality, and hope,” she said. At one point she ran out of paint and remembered pigments from Peru her husband gave her as a gift 15 years earlier – she had saved them for a special occasion. They were used to create paintings in this exhibit. The centerpiece of her show is a 36” x 48” mixed media work entitled Transformation. She and her 13 year old daughter Pateel worked on it together to make it more dimensional. Pateel said, “If you stand in front of it you want to jump right into the painting.” It certainly bears examining and will reward you for spending any amount of time appreciating it. All proceeds from the sale of her art in this show will be donated to rescue efforts for everyone affected by the recent tragic explosion in Beirut. Her father has a store  there which was damaged; it is where she grew up. To see more of her work visit her website, HERE.
