Barrie Lynn Bryant exudes even more enthusiasm for his art career today than when he started it 33 years ago. Barrie is a multidisciplinary artist with innovations in frame design, woodworking, gilding, digital imaging, and photography. He established his fine arts career with his landmark Southern photographs, The Arkansas Diaries 1989-1994, and recently published undiscovered images from this body of work in a 12-page cover story spread with Arkansas Life magazine (March 2020, with an essay by editor Jordan P. Hickey). Although Barrie started his career as a solo artist in 1989, he began developing a fierce collaboration with his wife, artist AB Word (RIP 1940-2022), during 1994 as the couple endeavored to exhibit her drawings and paintings in various markets throughout the USA. Since 1999, Barrie has directed much attention to picture frame making and history, which has led him to teach gilding and framing techniques at the National Conference at West Coast Art & Frame Expo in Las Vegas in 2017, 2018 and 2020 and to author 7 articles on the subjects for Picture Framing Magazine. He’s authored two articles for The Gilder’s Tip, including the cover story for the Winter 2018 issue. Also in 2018, Barrie taught his “Simple, Versatile, and Accessible Gilding” workshop at SOG’s Museum of the Gilding Arts in Pontiac, IL. August 2020 saw Barrie also on the back cover of American Woodturner and inside with an 8-page spread feature, “Gilding for Woodturners.” And through funding from the National Endowment for the Arts, Barrie has been awarded five professional development grants from Wyoming Arts Council, which includes one for his pioneering process of “Prints on hand-gilded paper.” He is a past trustee of the Society of Gilders and a USMC veteran of Operation Desert Storm. Barrie welcomes visitors by appointment to his Kirby, Wyoming studio.
