Sherry Harrington

Sherry Harrington specializes in oil paintings of Native American women and children. Traveling each year into the Navajo Nation, and periodically, visiting the plains Native Americans in Oklahoma, Arizona, and South Dakota, Harrington poses her models in their traditional clothing. Spending time with the families has brought her very special friendships. Painting the striking features of the different Native American peoples and learning more about their histories have long been her passion.   Harrington also very much enjoys calls for commissioned portraits of officials and individuals. 

Past paintings have been chosen for cover art for two children’s books, Native Foods of the North American Indian and Native American Tribes. Harrington is represented by Big Horn Galleries in Cody, Wyoming, and Tubac, Arizona. She has participated in the Briscoe Western Art Museum’s Night of the Artist, Settlers West Galleries’ American Miniature Show, Mountain Oyster Club Show and Sale, Trailside Galleries' Masters in Miniature Exhibition and Sale in Jackson, Wyoming, "Cowgirls Up!" at the Desert Caballeros Western Show and Sale, and the National Cowgirls Museum and Hall of Fame’s Heart of the West Art Exhibition and Sale in Texas, where Harrington has received the Best of Show award.
