Presenter: Glen Echo Park Partnership for Arts and Culture
The Glen Echo Park Partnership for Arts and Culture is pleased to present a solo exhibition of work by Walt Bartman. Inspired to face nature, Bartman is constantly searching for a sense of place. His work in Walt Bartman: Journey showcases his talent for capturing the light, color, and atmosphere in the landscape as he explores his journey as an artist. Like Turner, to Bartman “The Sun is God!” and his search is for poetic spirituality. Growing up “out of the furnace” in North Braddock, Pennsylvania, a steel town near Pittsburgh that was then in its heyday, Bartman vividly remembers images of the mills at night and the energy of the rich colors emanating from the steel furnaces and reflected in the skies. It was captivating to see flames reaching toward the heavens. He has carried this imagery with him throughout his life, and it continues to inspire him. Bartman is known both nationally and internationally for his painting and teaching. He is the Founder and Director of the Yellow Barn Studio at Glen Echo Park in Glen Echo, Maryland. He has taught in the Washington D.C. area for more than forty years. Specializing in landscape and figure painting, he is known as one of Maryland's finest artist /teachers.
