All Items (Swinney, Garland)
Collection Item
Perhaps reflecting his own background growing up in Cleveland, Texas, artist Garland Swinney has focused on paintings that display the self-sufficiency of rural life along with the icons that represent it, like "Covered Bridge." Born in 1961, Swinney won his first art award when only fifteen. He received his artistic training from North Harris County College, later serving as an instructor in watercolor there. Since then, he has traveled extensively throughout the American South, depicting various landscape subjects with an intriguing interplay of light and shadow.
