80 year old Helotes Texas Artist is new acquisition at JR Mooney Galleries, Boerne

J.R. Mooney Galleries, Boerne is proud to announce the acquisition of Helotes Artist, Margie Barker. 

As an introduction to the gallery, JR Mooney Galleries will be featuring five of Mrs. Barker’s small 6 x 9 paintings and two Lost Maples landscapes. The 6 x 9” inch paintings are moderately priced at $180.00 with frame.  Mrs. Barker is a member of the BPA (Boerne Professional Artist) association and had exhibited her work over the last 50 years.

Margie Barker is inspired by her love of the land. She has painted everything from New Mexico aspens to the Grand Canyon’s majesty but it is to the flora and fauna of Texas that her brush irresistibly returns.
Her oils, watercolors, and acrylics have won her a host of awards, including Best of Show at the San Antonio River Art Show. She is listed in Artist of Texas, Vol. II, and her work has been exhibited at the San Antonio Art League Museum.  

Starting at Sam Houston State University, where she earned a B.A. in art, Margie has worked tirelessly to hone her skills. She sketches form nature, her strokes deft, quick and seemingly effortless. Once in her studio, the life and energy inspire her paintings. Over the years, Margie’s realistic style has evolved into a modern form of Impression.

These small paintings are available for purchase at the Boerne Gallery as well as online at:
