Description Description Lawrence Fine Art is pleased to present "Janet Mait: Virtually", an exhibition of new and unseen work by NYC-based artist Janet Mait. This is the gallery's second solo exhibition of Mait's work and fourth exhibition overall. The gallery is working with Artsy to present the exhibition virtually and the link can be accessed here.

"Janet continues to refine and experiment even as she retains her signature luminosity. We don't know how long things will remain as they are, but we do know that her work needs to be seen and appreciated now," said Gallery Director Howard Shapiro.

All works are for sale. Private viewing can be arranged by appointment.

Noting her bravura use of color, one reviewer had this to say in the past about Mait's work:

" A glorious spectrum dances in and out of contemporary abstract paintings in [Mait's work.] With improvisatory elan, Mait fearlessly grabs the hand of each color and entices a full palette to the dance floor in a celebration of light."

Mait studies with Larry Poons at the Art Students League, and she credits much of her exploration of color to him. But the main influence on her work comes from the artist and teacher William Scharf. Scharf, in turn, was mentored by Mark Rothko and worked with him on the Menil Chapel.

"You can see the Rothko legacy in the stillness of Janet's work and the way her paintings seem to radiate light," said Shapiro.
