Lara Del Piano
Lara Del Piano, a native of West Hartford, graduated with a degree in Studio Art and Modern Languages from Kenyon College in Ohio. In 2012, she spent a year studying painting, drawing, and psychology at the Universidad Nacional de Cuyo, Argentina, and upon graduating in 2014, moved overseas to teach English and art classes at Instituto Camillo Golgi in Brescia, Italy. By using experiences abroad as inspiration, many of her two-dimensional works reference fragments of various cities and people across the world. Del Piano’s recent Di Pizzo series, an installation of interchangeable panels inspired by Italian lace wedding veils and Japanese prints, has been shown at the Jazzmen Gallery in West Hartford and the MAC 650 Gallery in Middletown. She is also a member of the North End Artist Cooperative (NEAC) in Middletown, a non-profit that organizes exhibitions and public programs aimed to support the growth of the arts in the city of Middletown.
