Maritime Artist John M. Barber & Son Joshua R. Barber Partner for Joint Art Exhibition


Renowned maritime artist John M. Barber, painter of the Chesapeake Bay, will join son Joshua R. Barber, painter of modern icons, for their first-ever joint art exhibition October 9.

Richmond, VA, September 15, 2009 --(PR.com)-- The show, “Barber vs. Barber,” is John Barber’s first major Richmond show in seven years and Joshua Barber’s first local show in three years. The exhibition will open at Gallery 5800/Suitable for Framing on October 9 and will feature approximately 50 original pieces.

John Barber, a Fellow of the American Society of Marine Artists, has painted professionally for more than 30 years. He rose to fame in the 1980s painting the characteristic seascapes and historic vessels of the Chesapeake Bay, most notably the now-rare skipjacks. John Barber has also painted Virginia landscapes, Richmond cityscapes and scenes from his travels in Europe and elsewhere. He has painted for President Reagan and the Clinton administration; one of his fondest memories is of the eleven days he spent with Walter Cronkite while creating a painting of his beloved sailing yacht Wyntje entering Edgartown Harbor on Martha’s Vineyard.

Joshua Barber paints modern icons. His stylized figures depict microcosms of memory both whimsical and dark. He has held two solo shows in Richmond and been selected for the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts’ “Art After Hours” for three consecutive years. Joshua Barber has most recently shown his work in New York, Los Angeles and London; his last exhibit was held in August at Knifesmith Gallery in Bristol, England.

This show also marks the dedication of the Barber Room at Gallery 5800, located above Suitable for Framing, where selected works by both Barbers will be on long-term display.
