LOCAL ARTIST FEATURED ON FIOS TV AND AT SEA CLIFF LIBRARY THIS MONTH
Sea Cliff Resident and artist Doug Barnaby was featured on the FiOs Channel 1(501) Push Pause program "The Art Studio" on Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday this past week. In addition, Mr. Barnaby's work is being exhibited at the Sea Cliff Library for the month of November.
Mr. Barnaby studied with Harold Stevenson, a protégé of Norman Rockwell, at the Stevenson Academy of Traditional Painting. He has also studied with Attila Hejja, a prize winning illustrator, and an official artist for NASA's Apollo and Mars space programs.
Mr. Barnaby has worked with oils, pastels and pencil. He is currently working mostly with acrylics. The exploration of the varying relationships between light and shadow play a significant role in the development of his work. He is drawn to a wide variety of subjects including seascapes, and scenes in and around his native Sea Cliff. Cityscapes and buildings hold a particular fascination for him, as well.
In addition to being featured as the Artist of the Month at the Sea Cliff Library, and on FiOs' "The Art Studio, Mr Barnaby has exhibited at Sea Cliff's Michael Anthony Gallery and at Setauket's Gallery North, as well as at numerous other venues throughout Long Island. He recently won an Honorable Mention at the Art League of Long Island's member show.
