General. Over the years, Robin Baratz's style, detail, depth, texture, and color have been lauded by her exhibit sponsors and patrons. Regarding Irish landscapes, Rosemary Noon, Director of the Fine Arts Center at Regis College, Weston, Massachusetts wrote, "Baratz presents the viewer with a harmonious balance of the material and spiritual worlds . . . In her work, light, time, and space depict both a memory of the past and a living present. "Baratz's "geography" of original oil paintings includes countrysides, harbors, and cityscapes of the United States, Ireland, Scotland, Europe, and Canada. But, no matter what the actual location, the landscapes have broad appeal, reminding us of places we remember fondly.Selection of Honors and Awards. Baratz has sold numerous paintings, prints and commissioned works to private art collectors in the United States and Canada.
