Harley Bartlett

Harley W. Bartlett was born in 1959 in Pennsylvania, as a young adult he studied at the University of Pennsylvania and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. As a professional artist, his representational style lends itself well to both mural and easel painting. He has exhibited widely throughout southern New England, including exhibitions at the Providence Art Club, the Bert Gallery in Providence, and in Massachusetts at the Francesa Anderson Gallery in Concord and the Granary Gallery of West Tisbury. Bartlett’s work is included in both private and corporate collections, and he was featured in American Artist magazine in 1992.

Bartlett’s Easel paintings follow in the tradition of the late 19th and early 20th Century American landscape (costal) and figurative painters.

As a freelance artist since 1986, he has painted murals for Evergreene Painting Studios, including the Lost City Project, BoPhuthatswana, Republic of South Africa. Bartlett has also painted several murals designed by Richard Haas, including Kansas City Federal Courthouse; Federal Regulatory Building in Washington, DC and five State Building Lobbies in Florida. Bartlett has contributed to numerous restoration projects for state capital and historical buildings including state Capital buildings of Michigan, Iowa, Tennessee, and Rhode Island; as well as the Cincinnati Historical Society; Iowa Historical Building and the Portland Historical Society. These are just a few of the over 200 projects to which Bartlett has applied his skills.

Bartlett's murals may be found in many homes in New England and many commercial establishments (e.g. Restaurants, Hotels) throughout the United States. Locally, he also restored the artwork of many churches and most recently provided the new design and artwork to St. Rocco’s Church in Johnston, RI. In 2003 he designed and painted two 8’ x 30’ murals for the Masonic Temple in East Providence, RI. that depict the building of Solomon’s Temple. His painted clouds grace the ceilings of state capitals in Rhode Island and Iowa and theaters in Ohio and the New Art Center in Fort Worth, Texas. Through his company he directs a team of fine artists, all of whom bring with them years of training and experience in many areas of specialty painting and restoration.

He lives with his wife and daughter in RI and is currently the President of the Providence Art Club. Bartlett is also an Artist Member at the Copley Society of Art in Boston, MA.
