Blue Water Fine Arts will present “Barbara Ernst Prey: The Print Show” featuring a series of 20 newly released prints Wednesday, July 3, through July 20. New print releases of “Hydrangeas” and “Family Portrait” (collection The Brooklyn Museum), produced in collaboration with U.L.A.E., which produces prints of Robert Rauschenberg and Jasper Johns, are included in the exhibit, as are prints of her iconic painting “Patriot” and her NASA-commissioned work.

Prey’s prints are in U.S. Embassies worldwide as well as many prominent collections including those of the White House, Orlando Bloom and Tom Hanks. Also included in the exhibit is a selection of small originals offering a preview of her upcoming annual exhibit “Barbara Ernst Prey: East Meets West.”

Prey is the only visual artist appointed to the National Council on the Arts. Prey graduated from Williams College, where she studied with Lane Faison, and has a master’s degree from Harvard University, where she was able to continue her art history studies. She was awarded a Fulbright Scholarship and a Henry Luce Foundation grant that enabled her to travel, study and exhibit extensively in Europe and Asia. She is an art blogger for The Huffington Post, a frequent lecturer and an arts advocate as well as adjunct faculty at Williams College.

Blue Water Fine Arts, Main Street/Route 131 in the village, is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. For more information, call 372-8087.
