Denee Barr Art News and More


I traveled through England visiting British friends who were more than willing to help me explore the English countryside. The farmhouse image was captured by me (1992) in the small village where I stayed for most of my trip. My camera and I became regulars in the neighborhood and I enjoyed many walks with my tripod on moist ground in my "wellies" the British term for boots. Currently, up for silent auction online in Celebration of the Arts in Howard County, Maryland 2007 is "Farmhouse, Oxfordshire, England" c Denee Barr 1997 (pictured above) and two other photos in this series. All three mixed media photos (gelatin silver print and mixed media with paper pulp) are for sale to help support the Howard County Arts Council & The Jim Rouse Theatre for the Performing Arts.
