"Tess's work is very much in demand. Her paintings are absolutely breathtakingly beautiful and they draw you in immediately; then you start to think and wonder what are they really about?,” said Krikorian Gallery Director Candace Casey.
The exhibit will open on July 12 and will be on view through August 4.
Barbato is a young, 21st century American realist oil painter whose work is painted in a traditional manner, but whose imagery and concept is anything but traditional.
In 2016, her work "Cake" was chosen as first place winner of the ArtsWorcester/Worcester Center for Crafts NOW exhibition which qualified her for a one-person exhibit at the Worcester Center for Crafts.
Barbato’s paintings have been accepted for numerous juried exhibitions and have accumulated several awards and honors. Some of her recent showings have been in the Art of the Figure, juried by Philip Pearlstein in Setauket, New York; Less Is More: Small Works in a Great Space, juried by Jack Rasmuissen and Joann Moser in Annapolis; The New England Collective IV juried by Kaveh Mojtabai and Brian Goslow, the Publisher and the Editor-in-Cheif of ArtScope Magazine at Galatea Fine Art in Boston.
She is currently working out of her studio in Framingham, Massachusetts.
