A retrospective survey of the figurative and abstract work of the late Southern California painter and sculptor. An amateur artist in her youth, Lawson returned to art school in the 1960s as a wife and mother. She had the good fortune to attend the University of California Davis at a time when that school was a hotbed of radical experimentation and profound pedagogy. Lawson's experience in the Sacramento Valley awakened the independent-minded artist in her and provided her the technical expertise to realize her inner vision. This small survey of Lawson’s art looks at her incorporation of various modes of abstraction and representation.
