Speaking of the subtle ways environment affects a painter’s color choices, Beth’s choices scream East Coast. From the thick of acrylic paint emerges Beth’s impression of landscapes, styles alternating between abstract waves and naturalistic scenery.
Beth Barry's bright acrylic paintings focus on light, color, and movement. Barry’s work is strongly influenced by the Massachusetts coastline where she grew up and felt tremendous happiness and excitement by the ocean. Pleasure is a large part of her process and a critical part of the finished piece. Barry states, “My paintings are places of happiness”.Beth Barry received a Masters Degree in Social Work from New York University, a Master's Degree in Art Therapy from Pratt Institute and a Bachelor's Degree in Studio Art and Child Development from Connecticut College.
