6OTS to host art show and reception for Laura Wolanin

OXFORD – 6 On The Square (6OTS) announced that it will be showcasing the works of Binghamton artist, Laura Wolanin. Wolanin’s paintings and sculpture will be on exhibit from Sept. 23 through Nov. 6, with a formal Opening Reception to meet the artist on Friday, Sept. 30, from 5 to 7 p.m.

In May of this year, Laura graduated from Munson Williams Proctor Arts Institute, a branch of Pratt Art Institute in Brooklyn. She currently is working in two studios, with Dorene Quinn in Syracuse and also Alana Matesanz at “221 State Street Studio” in Binghamton. Her main focus is on both painting (murals and portraits, on canvas and furniture) and sculpture (welding, woodcraft and found objects). In addition to her work painting and sculpting, Laura is the lead singer for the ambient/pop/punk band “Vice & Virtue”, based in Binghamton.

Laura stated, “I am an artist everywhere I go and there is art in everything around me. I believe that it is my job as an artist to help others see the beauty all around them, that they would otherwise never notice.” Laura added, “I am an artist of all sorts and have been ever since I can remember. I am now twenty-two years old and my passion for the arts is increasing daily. I have been extremely interested in art since I was old enough to pick up a crayon, but my very first painting was created in the tenth grade in high school. I had never really tried painting before that, and I quickly realized how naturally I took to it.”
