The Huntington Museum of Art will present the exhibit "Curator's Choice: Barrie Kaufman" from Nov. 10 through Feb. 3. 

A Gallery Walk with Barrie Kaufman takes place at 5:30 p.m. Nov. 9 in conjunction with the opening for "Mr. Fitz: Celebrating the 60th Anniversary of the Huntington Museum of Art." A reception follows. Admission to this event is free.

Throughout her 35-year career of making art, Barrie Kaufman has never stopped experimenting with new techniques. Working primarily on paper, and in a series format, Kaufman explores her themes in a multitude of mediums. 

Kaufman has been involved with HMA for more than 30 years, participating in numerous Exhibition 280 exhibits, and receiving awards in 1990 and 2003. This will be the museum's fifth Curator's Choice, a series of solo exhibitions, presenting the work of selected artists from West Virginia, Ohio and Kentucky. Curator's Choice began in 2004. To date the series has presented solo exhibitions featuring the work of Robert Hutton (2004), Paula Clendenin (2006), Darryl Halbrooks (2008) and Charles Jupiter Hamilton (2010). 

Kaufman's work is in the permanent collections of the Taipei Fine Arts Museum, Taipei, Taiwan; Rutgers University, Rutgers, New Jersey; Clay Center for the Arts and Sciences; Collection of West Virginia State Museum, Charleston; Marshall University Graduate College; University of Charleston; and many others.
