June 2-August 13: Michael Farrar: Travelers and other Nurds

June 2    Opening Reception & Art Walk

The paintings in Michael Farrar’s Travelers and Other Nurds include invented characters that are curious and memorable in their actions; even if what they are doing is not immediately apparent.   Farrar’s titles lead you a little further into his alternative reality where life is explored through the foibles, missteps and clever irony of the characters he paints. The often humorous and poignant subject matter offer the viewer a detour from his or her own reality in a refreshing and openly honest manner. 

Farrar has received more than sixty awards, prizes, and ribbons and is a signature member of the Virginia, Baltimore, and Pennsylvania Watercolor Societies.  He regularly exhibits at galleries, fine arts festivals and juried competitions across the country. Farrar’s work is held in national and international corporate and private collections.
