Rosanne Barr is an elected Committee Member of the GSWA and has a established following, with solo shows featured all over the UK. In the past three years her work has been selected for the RGI Annual Open Exhibition in Glasgow and she has been featured at local Art Fairs across the country. Rosanne came to prominence as a Finalist in the 2009 TSB Jolomo Awards and as a result, her work was exhibited at The Royal Opera Arcade Gallery. Barr was born in the village of Gartocharn, overlooking Loch Lomond, and as a child grew to love the picturesque seascapes of the far north-west of Scotland at Arisaig, Altbea and Durness. Her paintings of white beaches along the coast are among the most memorable in Scotland. Her series of rock-framed bays view out across the turquoise sea and often depict sailboats and colorful sunset horizons. These remote beachfronts promote ideas of escape in a serene, calm moving environment. Many of the paintings are entitled, Lands Of Escape, and aim to capture a cherished memory or moment personal to each viewer.
