Maine artist Barbara Sullivan works in the age-old medium of fresco, painting into freshly laid wet plaster. Her work is bas-relief and somewhat sculptural. Sullivan’s work both satirizes and celebrates the monotony of everyday life. She paints about all the things that she sees and does daily and cross country skiing is a favorite activity.
Sullivan attended Montserrat School of Art in Beverly, Mass., and Concept in Portland, Maine. She received a B.A. in Visual Art and Creative Writing at the University of Maine at Farmington, and an M.F.A. at Vermont College. She currently teaches drawing and painting at The University of Maine at Farmington.
Recent group and solo exhibitions include Caldbeck Gallery in Rockland, Maine; The Maine Biennial, Portland Museum of Art in Portland, Maine; Center for Maine Contemporary Art, Rockport, Maine; Morgan Rank Gallery, East Hampton, New York; and, in 2001, her work was included in “Fresh/Fresco,” an exhibit at Ernest Rubenstein Gallery in New York City.
