figurative work

"Among exhibitors whose works confront big issues of history, not mere style, Barbara Grant favors a tough, fleshy rendering of socially relevant themes in paintings with grit to them, which nonetheless remain tantalizingly without objective issues and answers."

— Victoria Donohoe, The Philadelphia Inquirer

animal series

"[Barbara Grant's] paintings bring together a number of domestic images drawn from everyday life, like children and dogs, in symbolic appositions. One senses that they're diaristic, and that the artist is inviting her audience to read them in any way that seems feasible or relevant. Grant's combinations are stimulating without being combative, and poetic without being sentimental."

— Edward J. Sozanski, The Philadelphia Inquirer
