Info

July 27-September 17. Artist Barbara Fenton moved many times during her adult life. With each relocation, in each state, she sought out artists from whom she could learn techniques and find inspiration. They served as a needed creative and therapeutic respite from the stress and hectic life of a young mother, an airline employee and crisis line volunteer. Soon the demands of motherhood, carpools and a return to graduate school would put all painting on a back burner.Then for 30+ years, whether at an inpatient adolescent crisis unit, a general hospital emergency room, a community behavioral health center, a wonderful agency for folks with developmental issues or in private practice Barbara sat across from her clients listening and hearing their pain, their sadness, their anger, and their joy. She was their advocate, activist, and repository for their emotions. Their universal, ageless and timeless human conditions are now depicted through her as she channels them into figurative works.Barbara shared, "I now understand where my paintings are coming from. They are not just the impact of a client on me, but my impact on them. Those of individuals I thought that I just 'made up' are really composites of those I have known across time and of me." Barbara's loose, figurative, expressive style channels not only the feelings and emotions of those with whom she has worked, but also her feelings across time and place. "Current events may be imbedded in the angst I've expressed in a person from my past. Is it their angst, or mine? The contemplative pose, the questioning look, the challenging posture, the distress, the social commentary all of these and more I strive to depict in my art."
