  • About The Artist: John Morton Barber is from Danville, Virginia, and worked as a commercial artist before heeding the call to paint Bay themes, a call he had felt since childhood. He is very involved in the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, the Nature Conservancy, and the Calvert Marine Museum, and has donated print copyrights to raise money for their support. Renowned for his images depicting scenes from the Easter Seaboard and Chesapeake Bay, recently Mr. Barber has painted important buildings and historically interesting neighborhoods with articulate detail and beautiful illumination, allowing the viewer to travel to fascinating places. The artist painstakingly researches the theme for each of his paintings, sometimes for months. His viewers can see boats, buildings, waterfront scenes, and lighthouses that really existed, the way they looked in the era when sail and steamboats ruled the Bay. John M. Barber's name has become synonymous with the documentation of America' s vanishing maritime tradition. He was presented a fellowship from the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts to pursue his education at Virginia Commonwealth University from which he received his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 1969. Barber is a Charter Member of the American Society of Marine Artists, a national organization dedicated to the fostering of fine marine art. In his efforts to document the Chesapeake and bring attention to the need for protection of this great national resource, he is active as a member of The Chesapeake Bay Foundation, Ducks Unlimited, The Nature Conservancy and The Virginia Coast Reserve. In 1981, Barber was selected as an Outstanding Young Man of America" through a program of the U.S. Jaycees. Mr. Barber has embarked upon a long-term project, documenting through his paintings each of the remaining Chesapeake Bay Skipiacks. He paints the traditional skipjack and workboats of all descriptions that decorate our country’s waters like the jewels… or the remaining lighthouses standing like lonely sentinels in the morning mist. These are the subjects his brush and canvas.
