January Meeting

Large                  Colorful                         Amazing               

These are words that could only describe the art of Karen and Tony Barone.
Their mind-boggling larger-than-life and thought provoking works of art
challenge the sense of scale & spatial reality.
In the world of Karen & Tony Barone, small objects that are a part of our everyday life:
scissors, wine openers, forks, toy puppy dogs & sandbox toys, become art.


 Come listen to this dynamic and creative couple share their creative process.

Both Chicago born, the Barones  met, married and began their careers there before moving to New York to set up shop in the midddle of the SOHO district where they became hugely popular. They then moved to a hillside studio on their horse farm in East Tennessee and finally settled in California where they became a powerful artistic presence working out of a large studio in the artist community of Venice Beach. Though best known for their sculpture and paintings, Karen and Tony have also brought their “pop culture” art to architectural designs of restaurants and businesses in cities around the world. They now reside in our own Coachella Valley in a home and studio compound they call their “Paradiso Seco.”
