            Welcome Friends and Art Collectors!  2017 was a terrific year with Cliff’s art being selected to be exhibited  10 juried national and international art shows, and winning awards (see “Winning Awards” in the above section).  The 2018 year has started off with a number of new exhibitions and sales have been very exciting!   We appreciate each person who has attended the receptions and especially those of you who purchased a Cliff Barnes original or print.  Thank you!

            We also appreciate your feedback as we continue to have Cliff’s art selected in National Competitions. To date, Cliff’s art has been juried in the Fallbrook Art Center Signature Watercolor Exhibit in February, the American Impressionists Society Show in Cincinnati, OH in March, the Cattlemen’s Western Art Show in April in Paso Robles, and San Dimas Festival of Art.  Cliff received his third consecutive Gold Medal in Watercolor in April at the San Dimas Festival of Art!   Here are three other art exhibitions planned for 2018 thus far...and more coming soon...
