For eight decades, Will Barnet has had one of the most distinguished careers in american art — his paintings, drawings, and prints are in major museums around the world — and on the eve of his 100th birthday he is still creating the works of a true American master.

    Thank you for your excellent show and much needed show.
    Will Barnet is a true treasure and inspiration for all. Selecting him for your show was a lovely tribute to a man that has done so much for the arts. He is admired and loved by all artists. To those that have not known of him this spot was a gift. Thank you, Edith Rae Brown

    Had Barnet as an instructor in the 40′s in undergraduate school and loved his work and knew he was special. I have enjoyed his work and the different forms/ stages it has taken through the years and am so happy that he is receiving the tributes from the art world that he so deserves.

    I am disapointed not to see the film of Will Barnet…My husband and I ,both artists,met him a couple of years ago in Maine, where we live, at the Center for Maine Contemporary Art, and had a good chat as we both in our late 90′s, remember many of the same artists and events as he did. Nice man!

    Its to know that an artist can continue being an artist late in life. I teach art to college students and at 68 think my life as an artist is over. but if I compare my life to Will Barnet I still have 32 left as an artist

    Will, we miss you. How wonderful that Mr. Barnet’s spirit and aesthetic has been captured, at least a little bit, on this film. Gloria McLean
