A renowned painter, printmaker, and prolific graphic artist, Barnet's extraordinary career of over seven decades reflected almost every modern movement in the history of American art. With a style that evolved as drastically as society itself, Barnet's work has been exhibited in prominent museums and galleries across the U.S. and Canada and is included in many important collections – such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum in New York; the Boston Museum of Fine Arts; the National Gallery of Art; the Whitney Museum of American Art; and the Museum of Modern Art, New York.
From October 18 through December 29, you can experience the vision of award-winning portrait artist, Daniel Greene, regarded as the foremost pastelist in the United States. Greene’s paintings and pastels are represented in over 700 public and private collections in the United States and abroad. His portrait subjects have included leaders of Government, Banking, Education and Industry, with sitters including: First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt, Ayn Rand, Astronaut Walter Schirra, William Randolph Hearst, “Wendy’s” founder Dave Thomas, Composer Alan Menken, Bryant Gumbel, and Bob Schieffer of CBS News. His recent exhibition, “Subway Paintings” at the New York Transit Museum at Grand Central Terminal was the inaugural event in the centennial year of the New York subway.
