Barry Van Dusen

I’ve known Barry Van Dusen for many years. He created wonderful illustrations for my ad agency’s clients back in the 1980s. In addition to his significant talent, what always impressed me about Barry is his unswerving dedication to his work. He is a consummate artist.

Barry is having an exhibition of his recent work at Mass Audubon's Joppa Flats Education Center in Newburyport, Massachusetts from February 22 to April 5, 2009.

Ttiled At the Water's Edge, the exhibit will feature more than 35 paintings in both oil and watercolor, many on display for the first time. Coastal subjects from various regions of New England will be represented, along with subjects from Barry's rambles around the swamps, rivers, ponds and lakes near his home in central Massachusetts.

  1. This is my first introduction to Barry Van Dusen's work and I love it! My favorite is Bluebird and Crabapples. George and I are very tempted to attend the meet-the-artist-event, but will surely buy a painting if we do.
