Barb Schwarz Karst

Barb Schwarz Karst (www.schwarzkarststudio.com), a Missoula artist, is best known as a contemporary painter whose acrylic series Shifting Winds emphasizes how the West is still intriguing and often romanticized. Through the use of color, technique, and subject matter, she is able to capture the tension between legend and myth. By blending photorealism and abstraction through the use of her unusual blind grid paintings, she captures the intensity and energetic intrigue surrounding the wild frontier.
