Most times when we see an art exhibition, its in a museum or gallery. However, sometimes its where you’re not searching for it, like the show of Sonya Sklaroff’s new work in the lobby of the Sofitel Hotel in mid-town. Ms. Skarloff’s use of deep, bright colors and thickly applied paint lend her paintings, which in this show are all anchored in NYC, an urban texture : whether its the water towers that define our skyline, or the local shops that define “neighborhood” or the crosswalks where we find ourselves literally and figuratively everyday – you’ll see them all in the dozen or so works on display. The hotel lobby is open 24/7, so you can catch the show at your convenience. Sofitel Hotel, 45 West 44th Street.
