Work by Barbara D’Antonio.

Haley Art Gallery will host an artist talk by Kittery-based artist Barbara D’Antonio at 1 p.m. May 7. D’Antonio will provide background on her works that are included in her current solo exhibit, “Reimagined Memory,” which are primarily figurative. The event is free and open to the public. The exhibit will remain on view through June.

D’Antonio’s paintings are influenced by the post-Impressionists’ works in The Barnes Foundation, specifically Bonnard and Matisse. She’s inspired by the artists that have come before her, and her work includes a little bit of reimagined memory and a whole lot of art history. Her works are in private collections in the United States as well as in Crete, Greece, and Spinetoli, Italy, where she lived and worked in the summers from 1985 to 2014. Her arts education includes such Pennsylvania arts institutions as Main Line Center for the Arts, Bryn Mawr College, Haverford College, The Barn’s Foundation and the Fleisher School of Art.

The gallery will donate 20% of its April/May profits to Kittery’s Fair Tide, which helps reduce homelessness by providing housing and supportive services to individuals and families in the Seacoast. The gallery’s gift shop showcases social impact gift items handmade by women from around the world. 

Haley Art Gallery is at 178 Haley Road, Kittery. The gallery is open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday through Saturday. For more information, call 617-584-2580, email haleygallery@comcast.net, or go to https://haleyartgallery.com.
