Three of longtime seasonal St. George artist Barbara Ernst Prey’s iconic paintings are on exhibit this month at the United Nations.

The U.S. Mission to the United Nations requested “Gallantly Streaming I,” “Parade Route” and “Patriot,” part of Prey’s 9/11 series, for the exhibit at the Presidency Office of the United Nations Security Council. “Gallantly Streaming I” previously was on view at the U.S. Embassy in Madrid as part of the U.S. State Department’s Art in Embassies program; and in the office of the Governor of New York.

“I am honored that my paintings from my 9/11 series were selected for exhibit at the United Nations Security Council,” said Prey. “The flags are metaphors for a difficult time and remind us of the importance of working together at an international level.”

Prey has had a Midcoast summer exhibition for the past 30 years; both “Patriot” and “Parade Route” were painted in Maine. During the summer season, her work may be seen at Blue Water Fine Arts on Main Street/Route 131 in Port Clyde. For more information about the artist, visit
