Artist Statement:

“Rapt in Winter (II)” brings together nine pictures in a variety of media which I made over a period of seventeen years. This group of work reflects impressions gleaned from the quiet seasons of the year: the fading last few weeks of autumn; the bright, white stretch of winter; dreams of spring. Making each and every one of these pictures involved lots of surprises, spontaneity, play, and great fun! Enjoy! - B.V.

About the Artist:

Barbara van Buskirk was born in Pittsburgh and raised about 25 miles north of the city in the small town of Mars, Pennsylvania. She earned a B.A. in Sociology at Thiel College in Greenville, Pennsylvania, and a M.S. in Mass Communications at Boston University. Her professional art career began 17 years ago in Albuquerque, where she began making and exhibiting monotypes at New Grounds Print Workshop before opening her own studio. Since 2013, van Buskirk has been printing monotypes at The Button Factory in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, and working in her small home studio. She also paints, designs collages, draws and writes. Her artwork is in private collections throughout the United States as well as in the public collection of the College of Santa Fe. Musically, van Buskirk took piano lessons for three years as an adolescent and continues to play the piano regularly for her own enjoyment. She also has been playing the ukulele for about a year, strumming and singing in weekly get togethers with a small group of friends. She lives with her husband in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.
