The EACC Gallery presents Palette and Pixel, an artwork exhibition by artists Bill and Sandra Barksdale. The exhibit will run through Friday, March 30th.
Artists Bill and Sandra Barksdale express their artistic instincts utilizing different art forms. Sandra’s artwork consists of paintings in watercolor, acrylic and oil, as well as drawings in pen and ink. Bill’s work includes photography focused on scenes of nature, agriculture, and other outdoor related scenes. Their home overlooks the White River near Cotter, Arkansas, and many of their works portray the simple scenes they observe around them on a daily basis.
Sandra Barksdale graduated from Fort Smith High School and the University of Arkansas where she earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Education. She taught in private schools in Memphis for 20 years. She is known for her bold, bright watercolor paintings, and she paints for personal fulfillment to express her own interpretations of her thoughts. Many of Sandra’s creative ideas are derived from personal experiences or photos captured from her travels. She refers to herself as a research artist because her ideas for paintings must be conceptually correct before she begins putting pigment to paper. “It can take me as long as two months to create a painting from conception to finish. The painting is my own creation, and it becomes my child,” said Sandra.
Bill Barksdale is a native of Fort Smith and also graduated from the University of Arkansas. After graduating, he held key editorial positions at two leading agriculture magazines, worked in communications at a Fortune 500 agribusiness company, and served dozens of clients as an independent agricultural writer-photographer. Bill’s photography has appeared in magazines, various types of marketing communications, calendars, private collections, as well as numerous juried exhibitions throughout Arkansas and other surrounding states.
