Chantel Lynn Barber’s loose style draws the viewer’s attention, visually beckoning them to wonder at the essence of life. Master artist and collector Kevin Beilfuss says, “Since the first time I saw Chantel’s work, I’ve been in love! As an artist myself, I know how hard it is to paint in a more ‘suggestive’ manner, rather than spelling everything out for the viewer. Chantel does just that! Through impressionistic brushwork, she edits out unimportant information and shows us just enough for our minds to fill in the gaps. Her sense of design and use of color are breathtaking! I am blessed enough to own one of her paintings, and every time I see a new painting, I covet that one for my collection as well.” Barber does it all in acrylic—with strong color, energetic brushwork, light and story.
Barber is a Signature member of the International Society of Acrylic Painters, as well as a member of the Portrait Society of America and the National Oil & Acrylic Painters’ Society. Her work has received numerous awards including, most recently, an Award of Excellence in the NOAPS 2020 Spring Online International Exhibition. Based out of Tennessee, Barber travels throughout the United States and Canada teaching tips and techniques learned over 30 years of working in the acrylic medium.
Capturing Character: The Portraits of Chantel Lynn Barber will be on view November 3 to January 3 at Customs House Museum & Cultural Center in Clarksville, Tennessee. —
