I am happy to announce that the Likely Stories series will be exhibited in a solo show at Davidson Galleries in September of 2019.

It is also with great excitement that I share a fundraising opportunity for the Likely Stories exhibition and other initiatives. Please click on the Support link above for details about the process, how to make a tax-deductible contribution, and a list of some past contributors.

Barbara will be one of 25 international artists featured in the exhibition Art of the Cosmos, which will celebrate the Hubble Space Telescope. She was selected by a team of artists and scientists for the show, which is organized by Fulcrum Arts in Pasadena, CA. The exhibition will open in April 2020 and run for four months.

Barbara was recently 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. Barbara’s piece in the exhibition, Revolution, is an image of the Earth as a bowling ball and a future-shock emoji 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.

Thanks to Michael Upchurch in the Seattle, who wrote about my work the “Making Our Mark” show at the Bellevue Arts Museum:
“For me, the eye-catching figurative pieces are the highlight of the show….‘Revolution (climate change bowling ball)’ by Barbara Noah shows earth in a state of alarm. Noah achieves her effect by cutting three holes in a NASA photograph of our planet – one for its horror-stricken mouth and two for its panicky eyes.”

Other group exhibitions in which Barbara has recenty had work include the Second Annual Fine Art Exhibition at the Los Angeles Center of Photography, an exhibition at the Adobe Waterfront Gallery in the fall, and the 2017 Seattle Print Arts exhibit at the Schack Arts Center. She has also been in the last three anniversary exhibitions at The Alice Gallery in Seattle.

Barbara 's work appears in the book Jim Olson: Art in Architecture, published by the Whatcom Museum and in Jim Olson Houses, by Monacelli Press.

Barbara was the recipient of Artist Trust’s 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.”
