Tracy Baker-White earned a B.A. in Art at Williams College and an M.A. in International Studies at the University of Washington. She studied painting at the Lacoste School of Art in France during a junior year abroad, and has more recently participated in workshops with Randall Exon, Jeffrey Reed, Mitch Albala and Claudia Rilling.
After completing her M.A., Baker-White spent 25 years as a museum educator at the San Antonio Museum of Art, the Southwest School of Art and Craft and the Corcoran College of Art and Design. She considers these years of looking and talking about art with the public as an important part of her gestation as an artist. Since returning to the Berkshires Baker-White has exhibited works widely in New England and nationally.
Baker-White’s work is an exploration on the importance of landscape in defining identity. “My attraction to the landscape is rooted in a belief that we visually bond to our environment at a young age. I feel a sense of awe seeing the land and evidence of human hands that have shaped it over hundreds, and sometimes thousands of years.”
