About William Dark
I am a landscape photographer and printmaker living near Beaver Lake in Northwest Arkansas. While most of my subject matter continues to be located in Arkansas and Missouri, my passion for the art began as a child while photographing the Guadalupe Mountains of Texas and New Mexico.
With a lifelong interest in nature and its conservation, much of my work has been influenced by such well-known artists from the nineteenth century as Albert Bierstadt, Asher Durand, and Thomas Cole. Similar to the Hudson River Valley, the vast protected wilderness areas found in the Ozark Mountains provide countless opportunities for spiritual renewal for those who seek it. My mission for the past 20 years has been to share my wilderness experience with others. My hope is that you will enjoy browsing through my work, and will perhaps be inspired to visit some of the places I photograph and see them for yourself. It will take a collective effort by many to preserve these wild and scenic lands for future generations.
I've been honored to have my work included in the design of numerous healthcare facilities throughout the country, including Mercy Hospital, Highlands Oncology, and Arkansas Periodontal and Implant Associates in Rogers, and the Carl R. Darnall Army Medical Center in Fort Hood, Texas. I am also proud of the artwork contributions I have made to non-profit organizations that include the National Wildlife Federation, World Trade Center Arkansas, Arkansas State Parks, Arkansas Game and Fish Commission, Dress for Success Houston, and others.
Thank you for taking a few minutes to visit my website. I hope that you will return often, as I continue to add new work.
