Deborah Baronas grew up on a New England farm and came of age as a designer in the textile industry. These working cultures have influenced her artistic investigations into the history of the American worker. Textiles are Baronas’ primary medium. In site-specific installations she creates interactive environments with scrims, paintings, drawings, video, music and photography. She draws inspiration through interviews, site visits, historical research and archival photographs. Baronas graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design and worked in the textile industry in the US and Europe for many years. She has exhibited her work at the Newport Art Museum, American Textile History Museum, Fuller Craft Museum, among many other New England venues. She has been the recipient of grants from RISCA and RICH and recently received a commission for a permanent installation in the new RI Veterans Home. Her art and design business is in Warren, Rhode Island.
