Framed: 28" x 34"

Contemporary American Impressionist painter Sam Barber’s work has been exhibited internationally, and is currently represented in the permanent collections of over thirty-five public and university art museums across the United States. Barber has developed over the past two decades a style which has roots in Hensche’s color theory and in American and French Impressionism. Open, light, and airy, Barber’s paintings are typified by intensely saturated “broken color” brushwork of great chromatic complexity. Barber has exhibited widely in one-person shows in the South and Midwest as well as New York and New England. He has won both numerous national and regional prizes and awards, and has been the subject of feature articles in various publications. Sam received the CCMoA "Muse Artist Award" in 2016 for outstanding contributions to CCMoA and the Cape and Islands Art Community.
