Harley Bartlett
The Black Dog, Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts

About

The legendary Black Dog Tavern on Vineyard Haven Harbor opened in 1971, the first open-year-round place vineyarders could come for a drink, or cup of chowder-- sitting right on the beach at the head of Vineyard Haven Harbor. Today, the view of Vineyard Haven Harbor is still as lovely as ever and what started back then as just a Tavern, has grown into an online tee-shirt and sportswear business with stores in Cape Cod, Rhode Island, Connecticut and Maine. Harley Bartlett is a New Englander in home, heritage and spirit. An early interest in drawing led to a career in Easel and Mural painting. Harley studied studio art at the University of Pennsylvania, where admittedly he was more of a “jock” than a committed student. Although his record in the hammer throw stood for twenty years he did find that art was indeed his passion and after graduating he followed up with an additional year at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts to refine his traditional art skills. He has run an art company providing murals and faux finishes for commercial and residential applications and has exhibited his fine art paintings in regional galleries for over twenty years. He recently painted the official portrait of Rhode Island Governor Donald Carcieri. His commercial customers range from Darden's, The Capital Grille Steakhouse, to the Royal Caribbean Cruise Line. He has painted artwork for Catholic Churches in Rhode Island and his handiwork may be found in Statehouses throughout the United States. He has worked with some of the area's top design firms, such as, Morris Nathanson Design, Niemitz Design Group, Judd Brown Design and Jackson Creative Group. His landscape paintings typically depict the rural, wooded and coastal areas of New England. The quality of light and weather serve to establish the mood of the painting. Man-made objects may also play a part as symbols to the mood or as anchors to help the viewer to move through the painting. Natural objects are used in a likewise manner. Nostalgia and or reflection play a large part in the creation of these images looking away from much of what modern living brings to the existing landscape. In this he is looking to the positive and major-key aspects of that natural world. These paintings are not always a portrait of a specific place but may be a depiction of a number of areas which support a theme. Sporting and maritime themes are subject specific and while not a specialist in these fields he endeavors to correctly depict each as required by the subject while still adhering to the same formal qualities that make up his landscape paintings. Harley Bartlett looks primarily to the artists of the past for his technique of painting. Drawing, composition and brushwork all work together, in unison, to create an image that, while realistic is not photographic in quality.
