B.S Farris- A Face in the Crowd

A Face in the Crowd

University Park, Illinois - The Visual Arts Gallery at Governors State University is pleased to present new ceramic sculptures the thesis exhibition of Graduate student, B.S. Farris. The exhibit will be on display from April 25 through April 29, 2011 with a public reception on April 29 from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. This event is free and open to the public.

“A Face in the Crowd” is a visual diary of ceramic busts portraits both of famous and lesser know artists. Most of the greatest artists that B.S Farris looks up to are no longer living, so she is doing this series to bring herself closer to them. She finds that people tend to separate the artists from the artwork and in her series she is trying to find out who they are.

An award winning artist from Indiana who had shown locally, B.S Farris holds a Bachelor of Art Degree and a minor in Art History from Indiana University and holds a Master of Art Degree from Governors State University. She is the gallery coordinator and a board member for two years at 119th Street Gallery in Whiting, IN. B.S Farris is currently a board member for the group 18 Artist an online art gallery.
