Work by Barbara McIlrath

Barbara McIlrath ’96 is featured in the upcoming solo exhibition Land Shapes at Groveland Gallery.

McIlrath’s current body of work is centered on two locations: the village of Old Frontenac which sits along the Mississippi river and the rural Hicks Valley which neighbors McIlrath’s studio and home in Pepin. For McIlrath, the artistic process begins when she first becomes aware of a unique feature in the landscape. She then spends time lingering and wrestling with her observations. Ultimately, McIlrath comes full circle by creating the painting and revealing something new.
