Maria Lago :: A Retrospective

Opening December 21st
Ongoing through Jan 21st

211 East 49th Street​ |
New York, NY 10017 | 212 308 7720​

In Beacon, NY, Maria Lago’s imagination and vitality truly shine. Her Main Street studio bristles with energetic explorations in paint & plaster, epoxy, wood & cloth.

“Think of entering Lago’s retrospective as boarding a ship under sail where unpredictable breezes carry you over 30 years of history from painting to painting, sculpture to sculpture, each with its individual scent & accent, contour, tint & hue. Relish this time & enjoy. It’s an adventure any guest, naïve or enlightened will not easily forget.” (more info)
