Donna Pinckley, a native of Louisiana, received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in photography from Louisiana Tech University and a Master of Fine Arts in photography from University of Texas at Austin. She has received Visual Artist Fellowships from the Mid-America Arts Alliance/NEA and the Arkansas Arts Council.
Her project Sticks and Stones examines the negative comments that some interracial couples are subject to. The project is more than just about racism, the project profiles strong people who choose to rise above hate and bigotry to build lives together based on love and respect.
Pinckley’s work has been exhibited nationally and internationally in over 200 solo/juried shows and also included in several public collections, such as the Ogden Museum of Southern Art in New Orleans, Louisiana, the University of Vera Cruz at Xalapa, Vera Cruz, Mexico, and the Photographic Collection at the Harry Ransom Center, University of Texas at Austin.
She is currently Associate Professor at the University of Central Arkansas in Conway, Arkansas.
