Farris employs butterfly imagery to symbolize change — continual change in the environment and the constant adaptation that life requires. According to the artist, one of the central pieces in the exhibition, “Wildest Dreams” refers to the title of a song by the Moody Blues, and features brightly colored butterflies floating over a background of ethereal blossoms.
Director of education at the Beeville Art Museum, Farris manages multiple, successful programs at the museum, including docent training, school tours, summer art camps and art workshops.
The Beeville Art Museum, created and operated by the Joe Barnhart Foundation, is first and foremost a teaching museum, providing cultural and educational opportunities for the citizens of Bee County and surrounding areas.
In addition to exhibiting works by some of Texas’ most renowned artists, as well as selections from private collections and major museums across the state, the Beeville Art Museum provides docent-led tours and art classes for children and adults and workshops for Beeville educators at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.
