Hope Barton - Premium Artist

Hope BartonFor 25 years, I worked as a printmaker, creating multiple-plate and hand-colored etchings. I showed in juried sidewalk art festivals including Winter Park, Gasparilla, Festival of the Masters, Ann Arbor Street Art Festival, Beaux Arts, Mt. Dora and many others. From 1997 through 2001, I owned a gallery in downtown Clermont, Florida. During that period of time, I started doing a lot of acrylic painting, teaching and demonstrating at Epcot, as well as many art leagues.

Since moving to St. Augustine in 2005, I have been featured at Fogle Fine Arts in the 'Riverkeepers Show', several times featured artist at Mullet Beach Gallery ,now High Tide Gallery, two solo shows at Arts on Douglas, New Smyrna Beach, Butterfield Garage Gallery, Acquisitions Gallery and Melrose Bay Gallery. I recently participated in the Greenscape show at R. Roberts Gallery in Jacksonville. I am included in the book,Picturing Florida, from the First Coast to the Space Coast.

Currently, my work is shown on a regular basis at High Tide Gallery and Arts on Douglas. I have had the honor of having a painting chosen to hang in the new Flagler Community Hospice building.

We are traveling from the east coast to the west coast of Florida on a regular basis and it has greatly influenced my work. The colors of the marshes vary from season to season and the creeks into the Gulf are rich with birds. The shadows and colors at dusk are pushing me to use different colors and I am including more and more of the wonderful skies. I will be concluding the etching process and concentrating on acrylic painting.
