BARBARA PREY PROJECTS is pleased to open the season with “Barbara Ernst Prey: New Oils and Prints” featuring never before seen small-scale Maine oil paintings and a new series of limited edition prints by internationally acclaimed artist Barbara Ernst Prey. New print releases include Gallantly Streaming (currently on exhibit at the U.S. Mission to the United Nations with prominent placement in the lobby) Family Portrait (collection The Brooklyn Museum), as well as two of her most sought after pieces Hydrangeas (Collection Bush Presidential Library) and The Collection will be on display in July.
Prey’s artwork is included in major public collections including The Brooklyn Museum, the Smithsonian American Art Museum and The White House. Her paintings are on exhibit at MASS MoCA , The Kennedy Space Center and United States Embassies around the world. Also included in the exhibit is a selection of new watercolors offering a preview of her upcoming annual exhibit, showcasing her virtuosic technique, authentic vision and distinctly American style. This is truly a great opportunity to gain access to a diverse range of Barbara’s original fine art prints and new oil paintings.
An esteemed figure in the art world, Prey was appointed by the President of the United States to the National Council on the Arts, the advisory board of the National Endowment for the Arts. MASS MoCA commissioned her to paint the largest watercolor in the world, she was invited to paint the official White House Christmas Card and her NASA commissions were part of the recent Smithsonian museum traveling exhibit where she was featured on the CBS Evening News. This exhibit brings together some of Prey’s most powerful works both conceptually and aesthetically.
