Meet Barbara

Meet Art Wise Tour Manager,
Barbara Newey, Art Historian 

Born and raised in Dallas, Texas, Barbara returned to university after raising her family, to study a subject she loves. She earned her BA in Art History from Queens University in Charlotte, North Carolina, graduating Summa Cum Laude. It was an energizing experience that was enthusiastically supported by her family and friends. Shortly after graduating from Queens, she and Mike moved back to Texas.

Combining her enthusiasm for art history and discerning eye for detail, Barbara creates and manages tours for travelers who appreciate art and cultural experiences. She is grateful for this opportunity to share her love of art and culture with fellow enthusiasts. By organizing adventures that embrace learning, we share experiences and grow as individuals and together.

Barbara enjoys reading, Pilates, walking and hiking. She loves being with family, traveling and discovering new and old sights.
