Lawrence Fine Art will present two Street artists whose work has evolved in these new directions--Puerto Rican-born Sen2 (Sandr...

Marjorie Strider, The Invitation, acrylic on canvas, 2010, 36 x 84

Pioneering Female Pop Artist Marjorie Strider Passes Away

Released: September 02, 2014

Pioneering female pop artist Marjorie Strider passed away last Wednesday at her home in Saugerties, New York. Strider, born in Guthrie, Oklahoma, was 81 years old. Throughout her 50-year career, Strider relished transgressing convention.  Her work could be, at once, acutely minimalist, recognizably “Pop”, slyly erotic and completely authoritative. This was a woman who knew who she was and what she wanted to say.  It was not always been easy for female artists of Strider’s generation—the Silent Generation--to find their voice and speak with authority.  Pop Art has gener...


The Three Stooges and Barbara Bradford Mann on the Steel Pier, Atlantic City, 1938

"George Mann: The Vaudeville Years" Opens August 23 at Lawrence Fine Art

Released: August 08, 2014

Vaudeville—No other kind of entertainment is as uniquely American as vaudeville.  No other kind of entertainment better evokes America’s Age of Innocence than does vaudeville.  A unique fusion of the English Music Hall, the minstrel shows of antebellum America and the Yiddish theatre, vaudeville was America’s favorite form of entertainment in the early 20th century and could be found in small town America just as easily as New York’s Majestic Theatre. George Mann (1905-1977) was one of the thousands who acted in vaudeville productions.  He was best known as the taller hal...

"Suzanne LaFleur: Serene Refuge" at Lawrence Fine Art

Released: August 06, 2014

In poetic compositions of vibrant color and organic form, Suzanne LaFleur evokes the serene atmosphere of summer retreat in her newest work now on display at Lawrence Fine Art through August 18.  One highlight is Serene Refuge, also the title of the exhibition, paint poured on raw canvas and manipulated in a manner somewhat reminiscent of Helen Frankenthaler. Articulated through fluid swatches of fresh greens and clear blue, the composition evokes an aerial view of the Hamptons' fresh grasslands and blue waters. Organic forms expressed through vibrant pink, red, and ...


"Crash One: Broken Language" at Lawrence Fine Art

Released: July 21, 2014

Lawrence Fine Art will open "Crash One: Broken Language" at its East Hampton gallery beginning Thurday, July 24 with an opening reception Saturday, July 26 from 5-8 pm.  Crash was one of the first of the 1970's subway "writers" to transition to canvas and helped pioneer the development of Street Art as a recognized art form. In 1980, Crash was signed by Sidney Janis, one of the first gallerists to promote “post-graffiti” artists. That year he also curated Graffiti Art Success for America at Fashion MODA in the South Bronx. This groundbreaking exhibition is viewed as a launching poi...


Marjorie Strider, The Yellow Rose, 72 x 60 x 12, acrylic and polyurethane on board, 2013

"Marjorie Strider: Second International Girlie Show" Opens June 28 at Lawrence Fine Art

Released: June 24, 2014

Marjorie Strider’s latest work is at once acutely minimalist, recognizably “Pop”, slyly erotic and completely authoritative. This is a woman who knows who she is and what she wants to say.  It has not always been easy for female artists of Strider’s generation—the Silent Generation--to find their voice and speak with authority.  Pop Art has generally been considered a male-only playground. How could a woman have anything to say about art that is inspired by girlie magazines and comic books? Indeed, only one of 202 works at a 1991 high profile retrospective of Pop Art at the Ro...
