Sherry Harrington

Sherry Harrington grew up in Texas.  She began painting as a child with oils and pastels.  As a young woman she was commissioned to do portraits in pastels but soon returned to oils.  Except for a few classes and workshops, she is largely self-taught.  She was always interested in the subjects of people and animals of the West. 

After being introduced to the Native Americans, she became fascinated with their culture and traditions.  She especially loves the brilliance of the bright colors in Navajo clothing.  Her subjects pose in their traditional clothing and accessories.    She is most well known in recent years for her paintings of young children and women with great sensitivity and insight.

Sherry’s works have been exhibited at the Briscoe Museum in San Antonio and the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City.  At the Bosque Art Classic show in Clifton, Texas, she received four of the top awards in the same year.  Her portraits were featured in the Cowgirl Hall of Fame in Ft. Worth.  She has also been featured in several fine art publications such as Art of the West, Western Art Collector, Southwest Art, and Cowboys and Indians.  Her paintings have also been featured in several children’s books.

 She and her husband live in Central Texas.  They enjoy traveling the Southwest and in particular the homes of the families on the Navajo Nations and Plains Indians where she has gained an intimate connection with the people she paints.

Galleries include:  Big Horn in Cody, Wyoming and Tubac, Arizona.
