NCA Art Gallery Featuring Guest Artist– Brandi Vandygriff
Brandi Vandygriff is a local photographer. She grew up in Fairfield bay Arkansas, with her parents Irwin and Jan Vandygriff, where her love of the outdoors began. Brandi graduated from John Brown University in May of 2016, and is currently working on her teaching license (she wants to be an art teacher). She loves to photograph everything under the sun; waterfalls, flowers, birds, the sky, her two cats, people. You name it and she’s probably photographed it. Not only is Brandi a photographer, but she loves to work with all art forms, although photography is her favorite. She has displayed her photographs at many locations, including the Arkansas State Fair, John Brown University, and the Conference Center in Fairfield Bay.
