Prey’s ‘Peak Season’ in Massachusetts
Williamstown, Mass. — “Peak Season: The Colors of Barbara Ernst Prey,” a new series of works by the internationally acclaimed artist and seasonal St. George resident, is on view through Nov. 30, 2013 at the Barbara Prey Gallery, 71 Spring St. The exhibit features a new series of plein air paintings including a series of never-before exhibited New England landscapes.
“I was fortunate to live and paint in the Berkshires as a student at Williams College and have been exploring the importance of open spaces throughout my career as an American painter,” said Prey.
In “Peak Season,” Prey has returned to paint a subject with deep personal meaning. This exhibition juxtaposes watercolors, which she has been painting for 40 years, and her recent return to oil painting, which she first began at age 9 with her mother, who was a professor at Pratt Art Institute. Each medium offers a distinctive way to interpret the subject.
Barbara Prey Gallery, which opened in May, features changing exhibitions. The gallery is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and by appointment. For more information, call (413) 884-6184 or visit barbaraprey.com.
