Barb-portraitSMGeorgetown artist Barbara Ariss-Stroh-Wasser took a retrospective look at her body of work in an exhibit, Stepping Forward from a Ten Year Retrospective, previously in the Holcim Gallery at the Milton Centre for the Arts.

The exhibit featured creations that were selected for juried art shows or special events, including the bi-annual The Toronto Clothing Show, The Birmingham Symphony/England promotions, the 25-year celebration, Lake Shore Arts, Toronto, The Smith Zone Exhibit and 20-hour piano fundraising by composer Frank Horvath.

Ariss-Stroh-Wasser was born in Eastern Europe, educated in Western Europe and came to North  America through marriage, where she raised two sons with her husband, and where she worked as an educator, designer and visual artist.

She describes herself as conceptual artist, transforming ideas into images. She is known for her vibrant images, as well as her black and white creations inminimalism or abstractions.

Her visual art work is presented in galleries, group shows and solo exhibits in North America, Europe, Australia and Singapore. Her work is featured in private homes and in corporations across the globe.

Her recent successes include the purchase of more than 30 paintings by the Frame Society Galleries in Singapore, and the purchase of 15 pieces of the 2013  exhibit “Global Brain, Individual Brain” by a corporate sponsor for the Laurier Milton Education Village Innovation Centre.

Red Door Gallery was thrilled to exhibit this selection of oil paintings, photographs and fibre art for its inaugural show by a solo artist.
