This exhibit showcases the virtuosic hand of internationally acclaimed artist Barbara Ernst Prey who has painted powerful views of her surroundings for forty years. In this new series, which showcases a compelling collection of 40 never before seen watercolors, dry-brush and oil paintings, Prey continues her exploration of the American landscape and our complex relationship with the environment. The New York Times writes about Prey’s paintings, “Prey is going where icons like Rauschenberg and Warhol have gone before”.
Her artwork is included in major public collections including The White House, The Brooklyn Museum, the Smithsonian American Art Museum, The National Endowment for the Arts,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 her NASA commissions were part of the recent Smithsonian museum traveling exhibit where she was featured on the CBS Evening News.
