Featured Artist for 2018
Bess Farris is a local Memphis artist working primarily with acrylics on canvas. She has a deep passion for design, color, and texture, which can be seen in her works. She is inspired by nature, music, and the playful, adventurous spirit of her two young sons. She desires to approach art in a child-like manner: full of wonder and whimsy, and without fear. For Bess, art is as much about the process as it is the product. She layers paints, mediums, and washing using both palette knives and brushes until the story of the piece is told.
