Michelle Farro: Dream Catalogue
Harpeth Hall School welcomes guest artist, Michelle Farro, to the Marnie Sheridan Gallery. Michelle paints from direct observation and from memory. Noted for her loose painterly style, light features importantly in her work. Her nostalgic paintings seem to reach back in time, offering a glimpse into larger stories. Time and space are ambiguous in her imagery.
Michelle says, “drawing from a collection of words and phrases, I attach titles to pictures in order to give the viewer a context in which to view the paintings. While I am aware that the viewer will ultimately interpret each work in a personal way, a title is capable of changing the perception of any picture. My compositions comprise an archive of images that can exist individually or be viewed as an undivided narrative.”
Michelle received her BFA from Laguna College of Art & Design in California and also studied at the Florence Academy of Art in Italy. Inspired by old photographs, overlooked items, memory, and nature, her work is included in juried exhibitions and private collections worldwide. Born and raised in Toms River, New Jersey, Michelle now calls Nashville home.
The public is invited to a free reception on Sunday, November 19, 3pm-5pm. Michelle will be present and will have additional original prints and small paintings for sale during the reception.
