A collection of unique paintings from Corridor artist Laurel Farrin highlight Kirkwood Community College’s second art exhibit of the fall season.

Farrin’s works have appeared in galleries from coast to coast since the mid-1990s, making many stops in Washington DC and New York City. Since 1998, she’s been an associate professor in the School of Art & Art History at the University of Iowa. Farrin received a B.F.A. from Ohio University-Athens and an M.F.A. from the University of Maryland.

“My current painting projects depict fictive canvas on real canvas, a doubling of the object we call a painting,” said Farrin on her website. “The painted wrinkles are reflexive depictions of the actual wrinkles of the canvas before it is stretched, alluding to ‘as is’ in material and process.”

The exhibit is on display in the Iowa Hall Gallery until Friday, Nov. 2. Admission is free to the public. The exhibit is open Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 2-4 p.m. and Tuesday and Thursday from 10 a.m.-12 p.m. and 3-5 p.m. A reception for Farrin will be held Tuesday, Oct. 30, at 5 p.m.
