Note:

Anne Meredith Barry records here an oft-made voyage across an inlet in Conception Bay, off the south east coast of Newfoundland between the small villages of Cupids (on the far left panel) and Bareneed (on the far right panel). The steep coastline is depicted in jewel-toned colours and freewheeling brushstrokes, busting with energy and joy. Barry was born in Toronto, only making her first visit to Newfoundland in 1971, at the age of 39. Captivated by the Maritime landscape, Barry would relocate to the province, finally settling on the Avalon Peninsula in 1986. Her pleasure in her surroundings is more than evident in this rolicking triptych, with Barry colouring her scene as vividly as her palette will allow.
