Director's Choice

Did you come out for ARTrails? The last day was a rainy one but my most well attended. Rain or shine, it was a great group of people who came to see me, my sculpture and where I work. Now as I shift gears, I prepare for an invitational show in St. Helena at the Ira Wolk Gallery. This "Director's Choice" Show will be up November through December. I'm sending them pictures of new work for them to review and they will choose 3 pieces for this special exhibit. Above is one of my favorite new pieces. The title "DUODENARY" means 'Twelve'. There are 12 points to the pieces while at the same time still holding my curvilinear style. The stone is Brucite Marble with has green streaks through the black and grey texture. It also has an area of "Fool's Gold" in it. This piece measures 18in.x 13in.x 7in. Check out other new work at: http://www.tbarny.com
Enjoy Fall and HaPpY HaLLoWeeN to all of you.

Join Me This Weekend!


Join Me Saturday & Sunday
October 9-10 & 16-17, 10am - 5pm Daily
Did you know that it is ARTrails 25th Anniversary? I was one of the artists who helped coordinate the very first ARTrails. As I flashback to 1985, I remember a group of us artists were looking for a way to get the public to our studios. It was a big year for me as that is when my 20' x 20' studio space was built. I invite you to come on out and see my studio now, hear ARTrails stories and see my new bronze "Gem" Collection.
I just finished 6 more new pieces for this first ARTrails weekend. Four of them are carved from Utah Calcite like the one shown above. It is always a favorite stone and glows in the sunlight. The other two are carved from Picasso Marble and Brucite. They are more directional in design. I've let the stone tell me what it wants to do by drilling it first and then through the transition of veining and texture, I carve the design into pointed curves. Typically, I have a preconceived idea of the design. These two new pieces are completed through this transition process of letting it flow from the rock.
I hope to see you this weekend or next. Cheers to ARTrails!
