October 19, 2017 Program and Awards Presentation by Debra Barnhart Debra's travels and education have contributed much to her development as an artist. According to Barnhart, her purpose as an artist “is to make the viewer experience what is magical and spiritual about life and being human. I want to inspire a sense of awe and fascination.” Her presentation focused on how she composes her digital artworks and will be placing special emphasis on her recent trip to Africa. Debra is a full time artist living in Duluth, Georgia, Barnhart’s home away from home is her studio at Tannery Row Artist Colony in Buford, Georgia. She was born in Plainfield, New Jersey and spent most of her life living in New Jersey until she and her husband moved to Georgia in 2001. A large part of Barnhart’s adult life in the north was spent working in the advertising industry in New York City; she was a media buyer for three different advertising agencies in Manhattan and an account executive at two magazines over a 16-year period. Her last position in New York was as an account executive at Art and Antiques Magazine. In 1999 she earned of Master of Arts in Fine Arts from Montclair State University.Over the last year Barnhart has been working on a digital print series entitled “Myth, Legend and Religion.” Each artwork consists of a photograph of a statue layered over a photographed or scanned background that she creates by coating old National Geographic magazines with a cleaning solvent, Citrasolv. The Citrasolv “melts” often have beautiful textures and painterly effects.In September, 2017 Barnhart traveled to South Africa on a photo safari where she took over 1,000 photos. firstname.lastname@example.org Visit my studio by appointment at Tannery Row Artist Colony, 554 West Main St., Buford, Georgia. https://www.debrabarnhartfineart.com
