Paul Pletka: Booksigning and Lecture
Add to your calendar
Date: April 25, 1:00pm-12:00am
Continues Until:
Location: 1803 North 7th Street
Details: This April we are pleased to welcome back notable southwestern painter Paul Pletka. Pletka was raised on the Western Slope, and his work features prominently in the Art Center’s permanent collection. His visit coincides with the release of Imagined Wests by Amy Scott, the first book on Pletka in over 30 years. Imagined Wests will be available in The Art Center’s gift shop for a limited time only, the week of April 23. That same week will include an exhibition in Gould Gallery of The Art Center’s Pletka holdings.
 
Paul Pletka’s body of work is informed by the West of his childhood and, even more so, by the West of his imagination. His paintings conjure scenes from the cultures, history, and religions of the American West and Mexico—diffused, as he writes, “through the lens of personal experiences, dreams, research, and ancestral memory.” Pletka will discuss these influences in detail as part of the Art Center’s Visiting Artist Lecture Series.
