This biography from the Archives of AskART:

Sara Garner (1927 -    )
 
Sara Garner is a Marietta, Georgia artist.  Painting in the realist tradition she is a respected member of the local art community.  Self taught, inspired by her artist father, her works are in great demand in this part of the country.
 
She displayed a talent for drawing at an early age.  In 1952, at the age of 25, she began painting portraits as a career.  Receiving many commissions she painted a number of prominent people throughout the Southeast.  By around 1965 she ceased painting portraits and because of her love of nature, began to broaden her scope of subject matter.  She now concentrates on still-lifes, character studies and an occasional  landscape.
 
Garner constantly studies, reads and searches for a deeper and truer self expression, feeling an intense need to communicate through her paintings.  She strives to portray moods, atmosphere and emotions.  She is a master at color, light, texture and composition.
 
She has exhibited frequently and received many awards for her work.  A commission from the Sharon Baptist Church, Smyrna, Georgia resulted in a painting titled “The Circuit Riding Preacher” which was reproduced on the cover of an album recorded by the church choir.
 
The painting in the Sellers collection, with a most unusual title given it by the artist, ”Burrs ‘n Barn ‘n Stuff,” displays her outstanding ability as a still life artist.  Using a simple basket, stems, leaves and chestnuts, she has created an autumn arrangement painted with the finest of colorations.  She uses the light to enhance the work and draw attention to these pieces of nature
