Beautiful Souls: Artwork By Sierra Barnes 

We are excited to have a brand new artist for this upcoming show.

Just in time for Mother’s Day, Sierra Barnes offers the kind of beautiful art that

pairs well with honoring the sacred energy of the feminine. Join us for an

opening reception from 7-10 p.m. April 29 at Art Is Life Studio.
At 19 years old, Sierra is self-taught artist born and raised in Dallas, Texas.

In 2002 she was diagnosed with Craniopharyngioma, a type of brain tumor

derived from pituitary gland embryonic tissue. This as well as other obstacles

and challenges in her life have not stopped her from pursuing her artistic passion.

It has instead inspired and motivated her as an artist as well as a person.
“Nobody’s perfect but everyone has beauty within them.

These pieces of art I have created were inspired by my own

struggles and experiences,” Sierra said.

Sierra is also a writer and writes a poem to go along with every single

piece of art she creates. Each of them are hand-written and attached

to the back of the painting.
“This art show is about how we are the souls within us and not just our

bodies,” Sierra said. “We can find beauty within our flaws and

imperfections. We judge one another and we sometimes judge ourselves.”

We look forward to seeing you. There will be light snacks served as well as

non-alcoholic beverages keeping in the studio’s mission of providing a

safe, sober space for individuals in recovery. 

Where: Art Is Life Studio 1200 E Collins Blvd, #106 Richardson, Texas 75081

If you were taught that you should not talk politics or religion in polite conversation, this exhibit is your chance to speak your mind. With intentional emphasis on ‘For All’ – this exhibit is geared to provide the community with artwork that confronts injustices and considers justices found in our modern world. In an age of social media, satellite, and on sight journalism, we are consistently bombarded with news and views of impactful events. We want to provide the community with a common-ground viewing opportunity that will encourage internal and external dialogue and contemplation on current events taking place locally, globally, and far beyond our borders.

Because ALL lives matter, we are looking for art that reflects the theme and considers the world’s poor, weak, hungry, the radicals, religious, and refugees, human rights, slavery, political views, movers, shakers, spin doctors, givers, takers, lovers, haters, activists, instigators, victims, voters, advocates, promoters, confrontations, concerns, injustices, zealots, protests, the blessed, suppressed, and unaddressed, welfare, war torn, well-being, misunderstood, fleeing, agreeing, and disagreeing, lawful, illegal, violent, peaceful, freedoms, concerned citizens, and governments.
