Featuring Representational Southwestern Art

Western imagery abounds in Barry Sapp's luminous paintings. From his studio in Tucson, Arizona, Barry paints scenes reflecting the culture and history of the Southwest and Mexico that feature horses, burros, Native American dancers, pueblos, cliff dwellings, Mexican markets, and of course, the legendary cowboy.

Through dynamic and bold techniques, Barry Sapp develops a unique and appealing atmosphere in his watercolor and acrylic paintings, inviting the viewer to become an active participant, rather than a passive observer.

His palette is a broad one creating unique, luminous color schemes to capture the ambiance and quintessential spirit of his subjects. His paintings come alive with light. "I like the luminosity of watercolor," he says, "That attribute distinguishes watercolor form all other mediums."

We invite you to browse through the Watercolor and Acrylic galleries on this site. Be sure to visit the Exhibitions page for the latest information on shows.
