    Biography  

    Lu Ann Barrow





    Austin, Texas artist Lu Ann Barrow paints the joys and
    journeys of life with a folkloric style of pointillism.  She celebrates
    everyday life with a light-hearted attitude through her focus on themes
    of rural Texas life, Biblical stories, and her travels to Egypt and
    Turkey. 

    Dana Friis-Hansen, Director of the Austin Museum of Art, wrote in the 2006 Lu Ann Barrow catalogue:
    "Lu
    Ann Barrow is a true Texas treasure, a gifted painter and keen observer
    of not only local lifestyles, but of humanity around the globe. Barrow
    has an uncanny sense for mixing the gravity of life's blessings with a
    "lightness of being" that connects everyday pleasures with the great
    secular and religious  lessons of life. Her painting style is
    deceptively simple, yet each canvas rewards serious looking, both for
    her deft use of color and pattern, as well as the way the content is
    carried by evocative scenes. Barrow's compositions appear to be
    embroidered as she renders every detail with precise dots and refined
    strokes of paint. Her visual parables are full of intricate patterns and
    lively colors that play off one another and invite the viewer to become
    involved and narrate their own story of what is happening in the lives
    of these painted characters".

    Of her paintings, Barrow says:
    They
    reflect the bits and pieces, patterns and flow of my life and what I
    observe of the people and situations around me. The results are often
    allegorical and nostalgic. Many times they reveal things in the end that
    I was not aware of when I first conceived the idea."

    Lu Ann
    Barrow was born in Rosenberg, Texas, in 1934, and studied with William
    Lester and Dan Wingren while earning her BFA at the University of Texas,
    Austin. She has regularly exhibited in Austin and Dallas since 1959,
    and was recognized with a traveling retrospective exhibition and
    catalogue in 2006. Her work was selected to represent the Texas Book
    Festival in 1999 and the National Book Festival in 2001. Barrow has been
    represented by Valley House Gallery since 1993 where she has had 5 solo
    exhibitions.
     
    This exhibition is presented by the Fort Worth
    Community Arts Center and was organized in collaboration with Valley
    House Gallery & Sculpture Garden.

    About Valley House Gallery
    & Sculpture Garden: Founded in 1954, Valley House Gallery &
    Sculpture Garden is Texas' most enduring fine art gallery. The
    Modernist-style gallery, along with the 4+ acre sculpture garden, is
    located in its original North Dallas location. Valley House Gallery
    represents established and emerging contemporary artists working in
    traditional media, deals in important American and European art, and
    specializes in reintroducing significant Early Texas art. In addition to
    presenting exhibitions in the gallery and throughout the sculpture
    garden, Valley House Gallery publishes scholarly catalogues,
    participates in national art fairs, and assists museums in curating
    exhibitions. In 1964, Valley House Gallery was the first gallery in
    Texas invited to join the prestigious ADAA (Art Dealers Association of
    America.) The gallery is also a founding member of both DADA (Dallas Art
    Dealers Association) and CADD (Contemporary Art Dealers of Dallas.)
    Second generation owners Cheryl and Kevin Vogel invite visitors to enjoy
    a unique art and garden  experience.
