Event Highlights



She begins by talking about how at 18 years old, she joined the army to as an illustrator to design maps and posters to promote the army.


As an illustrator in the military today, the common theme would probably be an expressive line. I found some solace in that. I like the idea that {Albert Giancometti} explores that line and ends up with something. I totally relate to that because it’s all about exploring.

Barbara tells us a story when her mother took her to a Andrew Wyatt show when she was 7 years old. As she gazes upon his painting called Christina’s World and begins to cry.

You go through life so quickly, and you have to process so much visual information. Just to manage getting through your life, you have to let a lot of that flow by you. But as a painter, I gaze for longer periods of time. I think there is a real beauty in the ordinary.

Black and white.. I think it’s very calming, but it is not forgiving. You are constantly contemplating your own emotions rather than just doing black and white.

He mentions in the beginning that as a child, Star Wars was released. He claimed he was the biggest fan and began to think of other-worldly creations.

From as early as my childhood, I’ve been fascinated by strange unearthly things. I would describe my work as expressive surreal. It’s other-wordly imagery done in a loose expressive style. Going to the office everyday gets the bills paid, but it doesn’t quite feed the deeper part of being human. It takes something more deeper and meaningful to do that.

I never really know what it going to happen. So I don’t really have a plan. I have a library of shapes and images that I work with. Right now, in this very moment I have no idea what is going to happen.




I paint Plein Air because I want to capture beauty. This is a beautiful area up here in New England. To hear and feel the wind. Whether its cold or warm. You can hear birds. You get the feeling of whats happening that day.

 What I'm really trying to do with this newer work, is have a real genuine discourse with what it’s like to live in the culture - what it looks like and what it feels like. You see these dynamics of people moving and dancing and raging together, and that’s what I see in our culture. I leave the faces blank because I want people to project themselves into the image, and partially because they can be anybody. It doesn’t matter who they are. They are all of us.

The rose is a symbol to feminine power, and that is something I can very much relate to. Even for all their beauty, the part that beats inside them that we try to pull out is their power. They are very powerful. There is a very close relationship between what it’s like for me in the garden and what it's like for me in the studio. It's nurturing. It gets to me and I get to them. And eventually, we hope to bloom.

I have been an artist for 50 years, and my style now is abstract landscape. I like to make people happy. That is what my objective is. It’s an artist's part of life, and I will never forget that.
