Business Notes

Gallery teams with John Barber to sell his works

The Annapolis Marine Art Gallery recently acquired John Barber's original artwork. Barber has closed his gallery in Virginia to concentrate on his original artwork and has sold his entire inventory of lithograph and giclee prints to Annapolis Marine Art Gallery.


The new enterprise will be known as John Barber Editions and will offer all 44 Barber reproductions for sale through the gallery, at 110 Dock St. in Annapolis.

Eventually, Annapolis Marine Art Gallery will become the center for Barber reproductions, both current and rare. A selection of original work will also be available at the gallery.
