"The appeal of Barter's stylized renderings of trees and rivers, mountains and clouds, is powerful. His ability to extract the essence of the landscape provokes marvel. He sees the geometry of a peak, the jagged coursing of woodland streams, a snowfield's curving contours. His palette, often not for the faint of hue, underscores his lively vision."
- Carl Little, Maine art critic and author
"From a virtual unknown artist in 1966, when he began painting at 26, Philip Barter has emerged as one of Maine's most imaginative, diversified, and prolific artists... his reputation as an innovative stylist and eye-wowing colorist borders on wizardry."
- Lyle Roger North, "Philip Barter: The Maine Experience"
"Acclaimed regional artist Philip Barter's boldly hued paintings of Down East scenes dominate at Barter Gallery. This playful gallery near Sullivan also showcases sculpture, woolen rugs, and other art by talented family members."
- Fodor's Travel Guides
"...One of Maine's leading regionalist painters. A prolific artist, his paintings, nearly two thousand in number, are scattered throughout the United States, Canada, and Europe, in both individual and corporate collections... A leading regionalist folk-art painter and interpreter of Maine's Down East experience."
- Davistown Museum (Maine)
