This exhibit showcases the virtuosic artwork of internationally acclaimed artist Barbara Ernst Prey, recently featured on the CBS Evening News, who has painted powerful, compelling views of her surroundings for forty years. On display are 30 never before seen watercolors, dry-brush and oil paintings, which explore our complex relationship with the environment. Also included are her early works for The New Yorker Magazine. 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 Brooklyn Museum, the Smithsonian American Art Museum, the New York Historical Society, The National Endowment for the Arts and The White House and her paintings are on exhibit at 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.
