The 15th Annual Lewes Artists’ Studio Tour presents a unique opportunity to enter the working environments of 18 regionally and nationally acclaimed local artists. These artists invite you to an informal introduction of their methods as they open their studios to the public. Meet these artists, see them at work and perhaps win one of the works of art to be given away at each location. A resounding success in years past, the Lewes Artists’ Studio Tour promises a day filled with color and form, light and shadow and an inspired view of the Eastern Shore through the eyes of the artist. Visit our website at www.lewesart.com to view more of our art!
Maps and brochures are available at retail shops, hotels and motels in the Lewes/Rehoboth area, and also at the Chambers of Commerce. Or you can click the image below and print the map on your own printer!

The immediacy of drawing has always had strong appeal for Barbara. At the beginning of 2012, she returned to drawing and decided that her focus would be black and white, in contrast to the vivid colors of her quilts.

FOR EACH FORCE THERE IS A RECIPROCAL FORCE
I have to work actively in the field to abstract my comprehension of what I feel, and imagine forms and colors that will be in equilibrium on the canvas. My paintings are non representational. The important thing for me is to arrange these forms in the pictorial field to achieve a strong composition. I balance all relationships as they are developed and intuitively search for a complete image. My non-representational forms will flow as part of a rhythmical interplay. The result is a vibrant, balanced composition.
This year I am working with the series:
FRAGMENTS OF CLASSICAL MUSIC
While I listen to a determined piece, I start painting large brush strokes in accordance of what I am listening to. I get immersed in the music and my brush hits the canvas in different directions and tempo. At times I have two or three brushes in my hand, different sizes and different colors, and I use them as the music tells me to. I am not thinking of what I do, just feeling the music that determines my strokes’ sizes, colors and directions, but anytime a brush stroke appears on the canvas, I move away to really look at the composition and decide what direction I will take next. I pause many times to avoid a chaos that could start if I am not careful. When I am painting, I use my whole arm and my body and paint somehow away from the canvas so that I can continually see from a distance, what I am doing.
The result of my work is a composition with strong directional emphasis and at the same time the subtleties are integrated in the whole.
My art is doing.
