Artists & Inspirations
Live from the Studio: An Evening with Barney Bellinger
Spend an evening in the studio of Adirondack artist Barney Bellinger. Barney will give a peek at his work in progress today and share what has shaped his creative designs and signature works over the course of his career. Out of natural and repurposed materials, Barney creates abstract forms inspired by beetles, fish, and found objects, melded with practical furniture designs and paintings to create pieces that are both functional and visually astonishing.
About The Speaker:
Barney Bellinger, based in Mayfield, NY, is a painter, sculptor, photographer, and furniture designer and an artist-in-residence at the Paul Nigra Center for Creative Arts. A native of Johnstown, Barney sold his first piece of art as a teenager in 1970. Barney’s work has evolved many times over the years, from customized motorcycles and cars to carved gold leaf signs to organic furniture built with natural materials from the forest. Barney is a self-taught artist, gaining his knowledge from books, inherited wisdom, and immersing himself in the beauty of the Adirondacks. His work has been exhibited at the National Museum of Wildlife Art and the Adirondack Experience and appears in the permanent collections of the Orvis Company and the Smithsonian Institution; it is also widely sought after and collected privately.
