Sonya Sklaroff Solo Exhibition at David Findlay Galleries

Cafe, oil on panel, 48x36. By Sonya Sklaroff

Sonya Sklaroff, interviewed by in 2007, will be having a solo exhibition at David Findlay Galleries in New York City. The exhibit, titled City Thoughts, will involve recent paintings by Sklaroff.

Sonya Sklaroff is inspired by the urban landscape. From her studio in SoHo she captures the energy and character of New York City. Her paintings frequently include water towers, fire escapes, street lamps, and other seemingly mundane elements of the NYC infrastructure. However, these structures are just one aspect of her paintings-- at the core of her work is a strong interest in abstraction. Sonya challenges herself with different methods of composition, contrasting elements of light and dark, complementary colors, and negative space.

“David Findlay Galleries has long been associated with fine painting. The gallery was founded in Kansas City, Missouri in 1870 by William Wadsworth Findlay as The Findlay Art Company. Since 1938 the business has been known as the David Findlay Galleries and located in New York City. Michael N. Findlay, the fifth generation in the family art business, is the president and owner.” --

Take care, Stay true,
