Art by Barbara Speyer

The August art exhibit at the GJCC features the work of Barbara Speyer, Rick Smith and David Landry.                                        

Speyer has studied with Hazel King and Paul Proctor in Nashville.  She has exhibited at the Centennial Art Center, The Tennessee Art League, and the Central South juried competition.  She is also in several private collections. Her favorite subjects are people and include ballerinas, Native Americans, musicians, children and animals.

Working mostly in acrylics on canvas, Landry’s fine art illustrations are painted in dynamic realism with very stylized splashes of color. He strives in his compositions to find a balance between energy and stillness.

Smith has won awards in commercial shows from the Los Angeles Society of Illustrators, Dallas Society of Illustrators, and Dallas Society of Visual Communications. His work has been recognized in Print magazine and the Annual of American Illustration, as well as having been published in numerous other periodicals. He has had group and solo shows of paintings and mixed media works in galleries throughout the country.
