Lawrence Fine Art is delighted to announce that it will participate in the first Hamptons Virtual Art Fair.  The gallery will present work by a group of well-known first and second generation New York School artists, including Robert De Niro, Sr., Vivian Springford, Amaranth Ehrenhalt, Seymour Fogel, Melville Price and Jack Roth.  It will also present work by contemporary artists Janet Mait, Howard Schatz, Geoffrey Dorfman, Robert Harms and LA2.

The show will appear in two iterations, the first, a VIP preview, from July 23-26, the second September 2-7.

Using cutting edge technology, the viewer will have an immersive experience that will allow him or her to experience the painting as if he or she were standing right in front of it.  "We want our clients to feel safe," said Gallery Director Howard Shapiro, "and this technology allows them to view the art in a safe manner while still experiencing it."

The gallery has recreated its signature eclectic presentation for the fair, with strong post-war examples and contemporary stand-outs.  The gallery will highlight work by Amaranth Ehrenhalt, whose work it has recently placed in several museum collections.  "Amaranth was in the Denver Museum show, and at age 93, she is getting a real wind," said Shapiro.  The gallery will also offer an early work by Vivian Springford, another one of the "Women of Abstract Expressionism," as well as Melville Price, who participated in the 9th Street Show, Robert De Niro, Sr., who also participated, Seymour Fogel and Jack Roth.

Contemporary selections include work by Howard Schatz, LA2, Janet Mait, Robert Harms and Geoffrey Dorfman.  "LA's 'Lonely Andy' is a show stopper," said Shapiro.  "We recently mounted exhibitions for Mait and Dorfman. This will be a  chance to appreciate them again."
