Samantha Sherry


Samantha’s work examines the relationships between memory, family, identity, and loss. Drawing upon her equestrian past (and present) horse forms and fragments become the language through which these ideas are explored and articulated.

“Horses have always been my point of entry into the world, a way of framing, questioning, understanding, connecting and commemorating,” she explains. Within her work, the horse is symbolic and provides the distance and vocabulary necessary for her to explore deeply
personal issues and motifs.

Samantha is an award winning artist and exhibits her work nationally at museums and galleries. Including the Cowgirl Up! exhibition, Mountain Oyster Contemporary Art Show & Sale, The Western Spirit Art Show, Art of the West, and America’s Horse in Art. In addition to creating art, she also raises and trains Quarter Horses at her family’s ranch in north central Arkansas.
