Barker-Wilson, Fleming and Wagner are professional abstract artists who have painted together for several years. The three artists met under the mentorship of Helen Corning who teaches at the Yellow Barn Studio in Glen Echo, MD.
Amy Barker-Wilson works on canvas, paper and stretched silk, in mixed media including fabric dyes, which she has developed into a more painterly technique than in traditional silk painting. She has worked as a professional artist including teaching fine crafts with adolescents, designing textiles for industry in Europe and as an art therapist/educator. She is enjoying the discoveries of abstraction, both in non- and representational forms.
Patsy Fleming's landscapes were painted on site in Tuscany, Vermont and Elbow Cay, the Bahamas. They are somewhat abstract but retain the sensation of horizon, land, water. There are other paintings in the exhibit that represent a playful side to Patsy's work. She has been painting for most of her life, but left her day job to paint full time in 1991. Her work is in collections across the U.S. and in other countries.
Mary Wagner's paintings reflect her interest in the exploration of color and form as a means of expression. The work in this show include both paintings on canvas and new collages, both on paper and on canvas, growing out of a recent trip to China. She exhibits widely in the Washington, DC area.
