Nature’s Poetry: The Landscapes of Lauren Sansaricq
Hawthorne Fine Art continues to feature the women of the Hudson River School, but with a contemporary twist, in its upcoming exhibition, Nature’s Poetry: The Landscapes of Lauren Sansaricq (b. 1990). For the first time, the gallery will exhibit the work of a living artist, confident that her paintings will stand up to the 19th century Hudson River School masters Hawthorne predominantly displays. On view November 5, 2011 – January 13, 2012, the exhibition will include approximately 35 of Sansaricq’s luminous paintings. Sansaricq, at age 21, is already an accomplished artist. A student at the Grand Central Academy of Art, she has been selected three times for the prestigious Hudson River Fellowship hosted by the Catskill Mountain Foundation and has exhibited at such venues as the Salmagundi Club and National Arts Club in Manhattan. Painting in a realist style informed by the artists of the Hudson River School, Sansaricq, like her forebears, is greatly inspired by the Hudson Valley region where she grew up.
