Join us via Zoom pm Monday, February 21st for our members’ meeting and a special presentation by pastellist Barrie Barnett.

Our guest artist this month is accomplished pastellist Barrie Barnett who will share her techniques and talents. Barrie started formal art training at the age of nine in classical realism in Baltimore. By age 20, she had worked her way up to the level of painting portraits, and began studying with top portrait painters. Barrie became known as a top pastellist, and was invited to teach at the Pastel Society of America in New York. She now works in charcoal, pastel and oils, loves all three for different reasons. The choice of which to use depends on the nature of the subject and client preference. Barrie paints a variety of subjects: children, adults, dogs and horses, all of which are in private collections.
