Barbara Prey Projects, 855 Port Clyde Road/Route 131, will open the season Friday, July 1, with “Barbara Ernst Prey: Prints and New Oils” featuring two distinct series: newly released limited edition prints; and recent small-scale oil paintings.

New print releases include “Gallantly Streaming,” currently on exhibit at the U.S. Mission to the United Nations with prominent placement in the lobby; and “Parade Route,” on view at the U.S. Embassy in Hong Kong. A print of “Family Portrait” (collection The Brooklyn Museum), as well as two of Prey’s most sought-after pieces — “Hydrangeas” (collection Bush Presidential Library) and “The Collection” — will be on display in July.

Also included in the exhibition is a selection of never-before-seen oil paintings featuring the recent Village View series, as well as a group of small-scale plein air travel paintings. The creation of the Village View series presented Prey the opportunity to revisit the pathways, architectural structures, and vistas she had seen for decades and her family had known before her. The travel paintings distinctively reflect on the artist as a world traveler; in her early formative years, Prey travelled extensively on a grant from the Henry Luce Foundation.

Barbara Prey Projects will be open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. between July 1 and Sept. 20. For more information on upcoming exhibitions and events, visit
