Will Barnet: Timeless Visions
June 14 - November 17
Will Barnet: Timeless Visions features seven works by one of America’s most evocative and haunting artists. Drawn from Barnet’s home life and often featuring his wife and daughter as models, Barnet’s prints and paintings are quiet and personal but also powerfully transcendent. In each, Barnet depicts what he knows intimately–his wife, his daughter, family pets, the woods and coast of Maine–and uses it to explore such timeless themes as love, intimacy, solitude, and death.
