Barbara Bean at Summer Island Studio

“Studio Cyclamen” by Barbara Bean

Local Artist, Barbara Bean will be showing at Summer Island Studio – Gallery of Fine Artisans for the month of April 2015. Artist Reception and Open House will be Saturday, April 25th from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Wine, cheese and hors-d’oeuvre will be served.

Barbara Bean has always been what she calls an art maker; she is inspired by the work of others and enjoys trying new materials. This show is combination of her sculptural assemblages created from found objects and her two dimensional works of mixed media on paper, both in a floral theme.

Bean’s work is more symbolic than representational and asks her viewers to enjoy the experience of entering a new world where there are no boundaries and no limit to what one can make with so little.
