A Gallery Talk with artist, Barbara Holtz, and Olivia Lahs-Gonzales, Director of The Sheldon Art Galleries. The Sheldon Art Galleries presented an exhibit of Barbara Holtz’s work in the Fall of 2014, called Barbara Holtz: Retrospective. As a painter, Holtz’s expressive use of line and color, often with collaged elements, illuminate very personal narratives about family and her own inner world. A graduate of the School of Journalism at the University of Missouri in 1946, Holtz also studied at the New School of Social Research in New York from 1948-1949. She worked in New York as an advertising copywriter and a television production assistant. Born in Boston, Massachusetts in 1924, Holtz studied painting at Washington University in the early 1960s. A multiple award winner for her work, she has been included in numerous group exhibitions both nationally and internationally. In December 2016, Barbara Holtz celebrated her 92th birthday.
