Certificate Recipients: Barry Simon | Virtual Exhibition 2017Main Line Art Center is proud to present the first graduating attendees of our Adult Certificate Program. Designed for students who want to take their work to a more professional level or rededicate themselves to the practice, the Certificate Program is designed to push students to expand their repertoire and provide the support they need in a community-based atmosphere. We welcome Audrey Hiatt-Sims and Barry Simon afresh as our Founding Artists for the Certificate Program and invite our visitors to learn more about them and view their work below.
Barry SimonBarry has been involved with Main Line Art Center for many years. His primary study of the arts was in acrylic painting with members of the MLAC’s professional faculty. Along with being awarded a Fine Art Certificate with Concentration in Painting, Barry has been an active participant in the Delaware Valley Art League where he serves on the Board of Directors. Barry’s paintings have been exhibited in the galleries at the Art Center, as well as other venues in the Delaware Valley. His work has been acknowledged in juried shows, including First Place in the Delaware Valley Art League 2015 Winter Show at Penn Medicine in Radnor.
Artist StatementThe paintings exhibited in this Virtual Gallery, as well as other paintings in my body of work, find a place between reality and imagination. They are representational insofar as they start with a place or object in the real world. Imagination is integrated in the process and merges with, or takes over, the reality, to form abstract or dreamlike images. Through these images, I communicate place, time, and meaning, in a fictional way that, all at once, is representational, imaginary, and mysterious. The works selected for inclusion in this show are from the Henry Botanic Garden series. Click on a thumbnail to view the image in a larger format. Scroll down for sales and exhibition information.
