Dear Friends,

The past twelve months have been exceptional.  

I’ve had residencies in the high plains of Wyoming (Brush Creek Foundation for the Arts); the built environment of Los Angeles (Otis College of Art and Design); a riverside village in southwest France (Moulin à Nef); the Blue Ridge Mountains of north Georgia (Hambidge Center for the Creative Arts and Sciences); and, in Florida, at a former artist colony, founded in 1937, whose buildings are a remarkable example of Mayan-Revival “fantasy” architecture (The Research Studio at Art & History Museums–Maitland).

This winter I had a solo exhibition of paintings at Penn State Altoona, and in the spring I exhibited paintings and drawings in back-to-back solo shows at Ground Floor Gallery in Brooklyn’s Park Slope; the gallery also represented my work at the Fall and Spring Affordable Art Fairs in NYC.

And now, I am thrilled to announce my current solo exhibition, Painting(s) from Recollection, on view from May 22–June 16 at The Painting Center in New York. In the Main Gallery I’ll be showing a selection of paintings from my residencies and from my Stony Creek studio. In the Project Room, there will be an installation of 50 feet of drawings in accordion-fold Japanese albums, and a suite of paintings-on-paper from a Virginia residency. The exhibition is accompanied by a catalogue with an essay by Rebecca Allan, co-curator.

If you’ll be in NYC, please between now and June 16, stop by The Painting Center during the run of the show.

Sincerely,
Barbara Marks
