Port Clyde, ME 04855
This exhibit showcases the virtuosic hand of internationally acclaimed artist Barbara Ernst Prey, recently featured on the CBS Evening News. On exhibit are 40 never before seen watercolors, dry-brush and oil paintings in which Prey continues her exploration of the Eastern and Western landscape and our complex relationship with the environment. The New York Times writes “Prey is going where icons like Rauschenberg and Warhol have gone before”. Her artwork is included in major public collections including The Brooklyn Museum, the Smithsonian American Art Museum, the New York Historical Society, The National Endowment for the Arts and The White House. Her paintings can be seen on the walls of The White House, The Kennedy Space Center and United States Embassies worldwide. An esteemed figure in the art world, she 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. She was invited to paint the official White House Christmas Card and is currently part of the Smithsonian Institution’s travelling exhibit NASA Art: 50 Years.
