Rachel Farmer Artist Talk

August 4 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Event Navigation

Rachel Farmer will give a talk about the project she worked on during her fellowship at Greenwich House Pottery.

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 Brush Creek Arts and the Museum of Arts and Design.

During her summer fellowship, Farmer 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.

This event is free and open to the public.
