GO Brooklyn Open Studios — Sept. 8–9

September 7, 2012

Come visit my studio this weekend! I’m participating in the Brooklyn Museum’s awesome Brooklyn-wide open studio event http://www.gobrooklynart.org/. Close to 1800 artists throughout Brooklyn are opening their studios and you all get to visit and nominate your favorite 3 to be included in a show at the Brooklyn Museum in December. You can see my profile here:  http://www.gobrooklynart.org/studio/rachelfarmer. And as part of all this, was excited to be featured in the Velvet Park blog here:  http://velvetparkmedia.com/blogs/go-brooklyn-art-rachel-farmer

Drop by anytime between 11–7 both days. I’ve made my Aunt Janet’s amazing chocolate chip date cake and have lots of new work to share. I recently came back from a 6-day photo/video shoot along the historic Mormon Pioneer Trail that took me from Chimney Rock, Nebraska to Devil’s Gate, Wyoming. It was both moving and a little haunting to have my great-great-grandfather’s diary account in hand from his 3-month trek along this trail in 1853.

Here’s a photo at Scotts Bluff, and in the words of James Bellamy Farmer (Aug. 16, 1853), “these Bluffs have the appearance of some Ancient Castles upheld by 4 pillars…the appearance from here is beautiful.”
