Trinity Community Gallery
January Artist of the Month
“I think I must have inherited an artistic gene from my mother who was a watercolor artist, and from a great uncle who was renowned for his paintings of the Canadian Rockies (Frederick Bell-Smith).
I have only come to know the joy of oil painting after raising a family and meeting a friend who got me involved in the art world painting with a small group ‘en plein aire’ and taking classes at night at the Salmagundi Club, a well-known art school in lower Manhattan, NYC.
Teachers who further stimulated my interest include: David Curtis, Rudy Coleo, T.M. Nicholas, Kevin McPherson, John Budiein and Linda Montefusco with whom I still study.”
The galley in the Primary Room will be open on Sundays from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. or during the week by appointment. We hope Trinity members and friends will take advantage of this opportunity to view Barbara's work in person.
The following photos are a preview of the gallery display. We thank Nicole Baker for taking the pictures.
