We are pleased to present "Family Inspired" a feature for Ellie Barnet.
Ellie Barnet, granddaughter of the National Medal of Arts winner Will Barnet (1911-2012), will be featured at Harmon-Meek|modern this December along side two works by Will Barnet with Ellie as a subject. Ellie Barnet, a mother of two young children herself, grew up close to her grandparents Will and Elena. Ellie, like her grandfather, has a keen ability to capture the human spirit in two dimensional painting and also often finds inspiration in family as a subject for her work. Her newest works often combine in an abstract fashion the landscape painting she mastered early in her career with figurative almost portraitlike images. Ellie Barnet’s paintings are often romantic and nostalgic in feel and transport the viewer to places from her memory in a dreamlike manner. Her studio is in Portland, Maine, and she is very much influenced by the landscape of Maine’s inspiring coastline. Whether the work is set amongst pine trees, a rocky coast, a blooming garden, or a quiet interior, Ellie’s dramatic paintings draw the viewer into a world of history, wisdom, and adventure.
Our hours are 11-5 Tuesday through Saturday or by appointment. We look forward to seeing you stop in this fall!
