About Barbara Albin:
Hirdie Girdie Gallery welcomes contemporary water media artist Barbara Albin as April Guest Artist. Barbara’s art career began with the sale of her first two paintings at age 17. Since then, Barbara has been in over 300 juried and invitational shows, with numerous awards to her credit. She has been a public school art teacher, adult art instructor, art show juror, art lecturer, art book author, and workshop instructor. Her paintings are in many private and corporate collections. Barbara has been active in several art organizations in both her native Illinois and Florida, and has received recognition for her many contributions to the local art communities.
Barbara works in watercolor and acrylic, and describes herself as an imaginative and intuitive artist who internalizes the subject matter and then expresses it on paper or canvas with strokes of joyful color and lively movement and energy. Barbara says, “So many can paint the real world, but I like to paint the world we cannot see. Into each work of art, I pour out not only paint, but also the joy and love in my heart.”
Barbara will be available to discuss her inspiration and her painting process and techniques at a Meet the Artist event April 7th, 5-7:30 pm.
Enjoy live music by Bob Housler, wine and great hors d’oeuvres with old and new friends! The Hirdie-Girdie holds their reception at the same time as their neighbor, the Tower Gallery, so you can visit both! Make it a cultural experience, and find that special piece of art you have been searching for. See you there!
