April 1, 2022, Longmont, CO– The Firehouse Art Center Writers and Visual Artists are pleased to present “Exquisite Connections: Month of Poetry”, an exhibition inspired by the connection between the written word and visual art.  On view from April 8, 2022 through May 8th, 2022, the exhibition showcases the work of 10 artist/writer pairs.  The pairs each decide who will create first, and who will respond.  This call and response form of creation often leads to unexpected results, pushing each participant out of their comfort zone similar to that of the exercise Exquisite Corpse. Exquisite corpse (from the original French term cadavre exquis, literally exquisite cadaver), is a method by which a collection of words or images is collectively assembled. Each collaborator adds to a composition in sequence.

APRIL POP UP EXHIBIT IN STUDIO 64- KAY KEYES FARRAR

From Neenah, Wisconsin, Kay earned her BA in Fine Art, Art History and English from Alverno College, Milwaukee, WI.  Over the last twenty years she has studied with master artists and teaches drawing and painting in her Colorado studio.

Her earliest memories are at the family kitchen table amid the chaos of a big family drawing and painting. She was never without a pencil or brush, and this flowed into her lifelong passion for creativity and teaching.  Creativity inspires her and her art  expresses the beauty and fragility of nature, celebrating the gift of life.
