When: Thursday, November 11, 2021
7:20pm on Zoom
Special Guest: Rachel Farmer
We are delighted to have the multi-talented Rachel Farmer present for us! Rachel will talk about the project she worked on during her fellowship at Greenwich House Pottery, which continued a body of work she has been making that features miniature sculptures of pioneer women in action in diorama-like scenes that question the dominant narratives of the American West. Join us for HRP's next Zoom meeting Thursday, November 11th. The meeting will open at 7:20 and the demo will start at 7:30.
Rachel Farmer is an artist who uses ceramics and quilts to re-examine histories that get passed down through families, institutions, and pop culture—such as the mythology of the American West, and the artist’s own Mormon pioneer ancestry—with a queer, feminist bent.
Farmer has an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and a BFA from Brigham Young University. She has had a number of exhibitions, including at: Granary Arts (Ephraim, UT; 2018), Leslie-Lohman Museum of Art (New York, NY; 2017), and A.I.R. Gallery (Brooklyn, NY; 2013). Farmer has been an artist in residence at Greenwich House, Brush Creek Arts and the Museum of Arts and Design.
All members will receive a Zoom link the day before the meeting.
