For our 20th Anniversary exhibit we asked our artists to submit a painting that represents where they are today as artists. David Bareford has lived in New England most of his life and recently moved back to Cape Ann where he has again immersed himself in the artist world of that area–inspiration to Winslow Homer, Fitz Henry Lane, and Edward Hopper.
“There’s something about a lighthouse…
This lighthouse stands at the gateway to storied Gloucester Harbor. It has been a lifesaver for many a mariner looking for a way home. Before the advent of GPS technology this was a critical means of being sure of one’s position when nearing land. Standing tall in the worst of weather it seems a heroic symbol of man’s battle with the elements.”
