Barbara Prey Projects is pleased to open their 24th season with ABSTRACTING FROM NATURE by celebrated artist Barbara Ernst Prey featuring two distinct series; never before seen oil paintings and newly released limited edition prints highlighting her distinct American vision. The New York Times writes, “Prey is going where icons like Rauschenberg and Warhol have gone before”. A key figure in American painting, her work is included in major public collections including The National Gallery of Art, The White House, The Brooklyn Museum, the Smithsonian American Art Museum, The Kennedy Space Center, and United States Embassies worldwide. MASS MoCA commissioned Prey to paint the world’s largest known watercolor. She was appointed by the President of the United States to the National Council on the Arts, the advisory board of the National Endowment for the Arts. She was invited to paint the official White House Christmas Card and her NASA commissions were part of the Smithsonian Museum traveling exhibit NASA ART/50 Years.

Print releases include Wayfarers (collection Smithsonian American Art Museum), Fibonacci’s Workshop (collection The National Gallery of Art) and Patriot (currently on exhibit at the U.S. Mission to the United Nations) and a newly released print of her 8’ x 15’ MASS MoCA commission for their new Building 6- considered the world's largest watercolor.
