It is with great excitement that I share my Likely
Stories Hatchfund project. It will support the completion
and exhibition of the second half of my Likely Stories series.
Work from the series so far can be seen on this website in Recent
Series. They are archival pigment prints, visionary surrogate
selfies in full throttle can-do mode that are deadpan homages
to the long shot and the grandeur of distant skies, in which viewers
ascend to improbable, transcendent heights, wryly reflective of
the humor and pathos of the desire for extraordinary experience.
I am aiming to raise funds for supplies, printing fees, partial
editions, and framing. If you can support this project with a
tax-deductible donation, in any capacity, together we can make
this work a reality!

Barbara is included in the exhibition Making Our
Mark at the Bellevue Arts Museum through April 8, 2018. In the
distant past, the Earth revolved off its axis after an asteroid
strike, which resulted in species extinctions and other cataclysmic
events. Barbaras piece in the exhibition, Revolution, is
an image of the Earth as a bowling ball and a future-shock face.
It is a response to that moment in history, as well as to climate
change. The piece was selected by curator Michael W. Monroe, Director
Emeritus of BAM, Curator-in-Charge of the Renwick Gallery, Smithsonian
American Art Museum, for the exhibition.

show at the Bellevue Arts Museum:
For me, the eye-catching figurative pieces are the highlight
of the show
.Revolution (climate change bowling ball)

Barbara was recently a guest critic at the Gage
Academy 2017 Atelier Critiques. Her work appears in the book Jim
Olson: Art in Architecture, published by the Whatcom Museum
and in Jim Olson Houses, by Monacelli Press. Her work is
part of the John and Kim Shirley Collection.
Barbara was the recipient of Artist Trusts
THA Award for lifetime artistic achievement. The panelists who
selected her wrote:
The panel felt that Barbara Noah was an artist who had,
throughout her years of creating work, maintained a consistent
artistic voice a voice that was not just universal, but
also fresh and current. The panel admired her ability to adapt
to technologies, while flawlessly maintain a personal vision,
wit, and proficiency.
