Artist Laura Plageman lives and works in Oakland, CA. She earned a BA at Wesleyan University (Middletown, CT) and an MFA from the California College of the Arts (San Francisco, CA). She is best known for her studio practice of creatively re-working her photographs of landscapes and abstractions, exploring the power and emotion of the photograph as both medium and message. Her work has been exhibited in galleries and institutions across the United States and internationally, including recent exhibitions with Lightfield Arts in NY and the Houston Center for Photography in Houston. Laura will be included in the upcoming exhibition, The Art of Trees, at the Gund Gallery of Kenyon College in Ohio in January, 2021.
