Janet Sawyer: Cosmic View

 Janet Sawyer: Cosmic View – May 20  – June 14, 2008

Janet Sawyer’s new works explore astronomical phenomena, and their travels, orbits, seasonal changes and movements through space and time, both observed and imagined. She has previously exhibited at Blue Mountain and in Paris, France; Delray, Florida; Bridgehampton, New York; and other venues. Her work has been reviewed in The New York Times, Art in America, Art News, and other publications.

 

Lawrence Campbell, writing for Art in America, said that her work captures “the sense of passing life caught for a moment while still on the wing.”
Ken Johnson wrote: “….combining childlike draftsmanship and modernist painterly sophistication . . . The paintings have a buoyant . . . immediacy. ” (New York Times)

Sawyer lives and works in New York City and Montauk, NY. Her work is in many public and private collections including the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the West Publishing Company, and the Scott Collection at Bryn Mawr College.
