Lara Plecas’ solo exhibition, “Lineage” opens January 5th at Chartreuse Gallery in Phoenix, with an opening reception from 6:00pm – 10:00pm.

This collection of work consists of encaustic collage pieces inspired by Op art, folk art, and quilting. Together the pieces help to tell a story of my heritage and the family lineage. I grew up hearing stories that were passed down through the generations. These stories were of struggles endured and the strength of character that developed through their experiences. The only connection I have with these members of my family are my memories, the stories told and a few special belongings that were passed along. Our relatives paved the way here in America by settling into a new land and creating a life for our families to grow. In my work, I seek to peel back layers to reveal the past and to explore the strength and struggles that my family endured.

Lara Plecas has been a visual artist exhibiting work in the Valley since 2000. She was a part of the budding art community in downtown Phoenix that resides along Roosevelt and Grand Avenue. She was a member of the Eyelounge Artists collective from 2010-2013, during this time they had group exhibitions in Israel and at the Mesa Arts Center; and the Mesa Arts Center has since acquired her work for their permanent collection. She recently exhibited two large-scale pieces on display at the Phoenix Airport Museum at Sky Harbor Airport. Lara’s work utilizes elements of folk art and textile patterns reimagined through old papers and book pages. Her works are narrative and tell stories of nostalgia and family history, much like a quilter.
