Janet Sawyer: New Abstract Paintings

October 28 – November 22, 2014

Blue Mountain Gallery presents new abstract paintings by Janet Sawyer in a group of works on canvas and smaller works on paper.

Sawyer’s free form shapes overlap/underlap or emerge by incising in her palate of primary colors plus black white and gray.  They converge in multiple configurations creating the rhythms, tensions and harmonies of each work.

Janet Sawyer was born in Raleigh North Carolina in 1942. She was a founding student of the NY Studio School in 1964 and received her MFA from Brooklyn College in 1974. She lives and works in Manhattan and Montauk, NY and has exhibited continuously since 1972 mostly in NYC but also Paris, Berlin, and at different American venues. Her work is in many collections including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, West Publishing, Gibbons PC, Sterling Corp. as well as private collections in the U.S. and Europe. Reviews include the New York Times, Art In America, Art News, Where NY Magazine, Ms. Magazine and other publications.
