“I love being an artist. I like painting, It’s fun because I can make it. I use a lot of color sometimes; different ones, you know. The colors make me happy. I look at books to draw animals.”

Cheerful, helpful and hardworking, lifelong Hyde Park resident Kristina Barney has attended Gateway since 1993. Barney never tires of drawing distinctive images of houses, trains, flowers, and animals, with her trademark rainbow sky. As much as she enjoys these standbys, Barney has added her touch to more experimental imagery, often with exciting results. Barney also works with fabric and ceramics; she is a jeweler, weaver, and actress. She thoroughly enjoys her time at Gateway, especially with fellow artist Matthew Treggiari.

Barney has shown her work throughout Massachusetts, New York, Pennsylvania and England. Her work has been exhibited at the Arnheim Gallery, the Children’s Museum, in Boston, the Zeitgeist Gallery in Cambridge, the Outsider Art Fair and the Margaret Bodell Gallery, in New York, and the Goldhaber-Fend Fine Arts Center Gallery in Johnstown, Pennsylvania.

Barney has also received an award for art excellence from the Edensburg Center in Pennsylvania and MENCAP in London, England.
