‘Unfamiliar Worlds’ --Painting by Barbara Albert at Levy Gallery
PORTSMOUTH – New Hampshire Art Association member Barbara Albert will be showing her latest work during an exhibit titled, “Unfamiliar Worlds,” during the month of June at the Robert Lincoln Levy Gallery.
The large square canvases in this solo exhibit of acrylic collages use color, composition and the whimsical nature of light to speculate what visitors to alternative worlds might find.
“When your space craft lands, where will you visit?” Albert asks.
Albert received a bachelor’s degree in science with an art education minor in sculpture for the Massachusetts College of Art and went on to receive her master’s degree in Museum Studies from Cooperstown Graduate School (State University of New York.)
She has taught art in public and private schools, gifted programs, adult education and junior colleges in Massachusetts.
She later served as a museum educator and then director of the Drake Well Museum in Titusville, Pennsylvania for 26 years.
After retiring in 2013 to Dover, Albert was juried into the NHAA, and was president of the NHAA board from 2015 to 2017. She is involved in new member jurying, developing and teaching art education for children and adults, and oversees the annual NHAA Sheafe Exhibit held each summer in Prescott Park.
She currently volunteers at the Children’s Museum of New Hampshire and teaches classes for disabled adults for One Sky, based in Portsmouth
