Lawrence Fine Art will open "Left Bank Brooklyn," featuring work by Brooklyn-based artists Karl Klingbiel and Robert Szot, on Saturday, September 28 with an artist's reception Saturday, October 12, Columbus Day Weekend, 4-7 pm.  The reception will coincide with Hamptons International Film Festival but finish before the movies begin. 

"Brooklyn has become the 'Left Bank' of New York," says Gallery Director Howard Shapiro. "It features an amazing number of quality galleries and outstanding artists.  This is our way of bringing New York's 'Left Bank' to the Hamptons. We consider Karl and Rob two outstanding mid-career artists whose work is worthy of being seen and owned.  We are honored to have them show with us."

Both Szot and Klingbiel work in abstract expressionism.  Klingbiel's work is in the Agnes Gund Collection and the collection of the MOMA. Szot shows frequently with Muriel Guelpin Gallery in NYC.

"What ties the two together, aside from their Brooklyn domicile, is that they are both looking at abstraction in new ways," says Shapiro.  "It will be an informative juxtaposition."

"Left Bank Brooklyn" is the first show of the gallery's fall season.  "The Hamptons have become an arts destination in their own right," says Shapiro.  "What better way to spend a glorious fall day than to see beautiful art and and then go to the Film Festival?"
