@ The Barrett Gallery at THE RIVER in Rancho Mirage

Transcendentals
Barbara Barrett, Artists

Seven Deadly Sins
Robert Barrett, Artist

October 17–November 25, 2017
Sunday–Thursday, 4–8 pm
Friday and Saturday, 2–8 pm

The painting and drawings in this exhibition confront life’s choices, the consequences of choices, and the often-contrasting approaches men and women take regarding responsibility of their choices. The human condition has been a focus of the Barrett’s attention since they served together as Peace Corps volunteers following graduating from art school in 1968. Barbara’s career as an artist, art teacher and eventually education administrator and Robert’s as an art museum director and then as a cultural tourism anagement executive provided them with ample opportunity to observe and experience the shortcomings and successes that life delivers. Contrasting technical approaches while focused on the same theme make this exhibition of the Barrett’s artwork an intriguing example of how artists express similar concepts in strikingly different ways.

The Artists

Barbara Barrett, Artist, and Robert Barrett, Artist, are Rancho Mirage residents. They met in art school over fifty years ago. They have been passionate partners as students of art, art educators and community art activists. They believe that art can make a difference in people lives and have attempted to influence reflection and positive growth through their example as creative community participants and their artwork. The painting and drawings in this exhibition confront life’s choices, the consequences of choices, and the often-contrasting approaches men and women take regarding responsibility of their choices.

Contrasting technical approaches while focused on the same theme make this exhibition of the Barrett’s artwork an intriguing experience for the art consuming public. However, the Barrett’s hope that it will capture the imaginations of a larger audience and thus the shopping center venue. This is the Barrett’s first show together since 1972. For decades Robert kept his art making private however Barbara has enjoyed a successful art career with gallery representation and museum shows of her work. Her work is in many private and public collections.
