Gallery Lazzaro is not your typical gallery. Think interior design showroom with the cerebral vibe of a salon centered around great art. Located at "The Art Place" in Palm Desert's Design District, the factory loft-turned-gallery offers an ambiance of intimate elegance with an industrial edge.
Lawrence Lazzaro and Nicholas Hertneck, owners of Nicholas Lawrence Design, created the space with mindful attention to the overall gallery experience. Plank-style flooring, designed in flow patterns, gently guides people through four distinctive gallery spaces, and strategically placed antiques and furnishings throughout create a sense of scale and what the art might look like in a home.
Laura Janes is a fine artist specializing in painting natural forms. Her work is informed by the raw, organic beauty of the Southern California mountains and deserts. She draws inspiration from elements found in the natural world, including desert plants, trees, water, and rocks.
For Janes, nature is an endless, complex seduction, resulting in art that is always an affair of the heart, presented with attraction, enchantment, and acute clarity. She works primarily in acrylic on canvas as well as in watercolor, and occasionally creates mixed media pieces using images, gold and silver leaf, and encaustic materials. Subjects are represented in the abstract, coming to life through Janes’ signature use of amplified colors, contrast, and composition.
