Paintings by Mark Barry
June 1, 2017 to August 4, 2017
Mark Barry celebrates life with paint brush in hand. No moment is too small – kids playing on the swings, dogs in the park, a couple dancing in the kitchen, bicyclists taking on a hill or the pitcher winding up on the mound – and he captures each one with bold, brilliant color often in large scale – as if he needs to paint large to capture each moment’s importance. Mark Barry paints happiness and celebrates the gift of time. He paints a deep appreciation of life – and the viewer quickly realizes it is contagious.
