Tara Barr began pursuing an art career in earnest after spending over a decade working in the technology field. She is an oil painter who creates fun, nostalgic pop-art still lives. Tara’s love of history, technology, and design are all evident in her artwork.
She has had the pleasure of exhibiting consistently all over the DC metropolitan area as well as across the country. Most recently, she is part of a four-person exhibition at the James Oliver Gallery in Philadelphia.
Tara maintains a studio at the Torpedo Factory Art Center and serves on the board of the Torpedo Factory Artists’ Association. As a Torpedo Factory Artist, Tara has a strong interest in engaging the public in the creative process and encouraging everyone to dedicate time to creative pursuits.
Tara is an active member of Del Ray Artisans and The Art League and holds a B.A. in Art History from George Mason University. You can find her online at www.tarabarrart.com, on Instagram @tarabarr.art, and in person in the Torpedo Factory Studio 8.
