January Gallery Artist
Paul Farmer

Paul Farmer is an Iredell County artist with a BA from NC State and MFA from Western Carolina. He teaches visual arts at Winthrop University, Central Piedmont and Rowan-Cabarrus Community Colleges.

As an interdisciplinary artist, Farmer's love of photography and science have generated a unique body of work using lichen and optical art.  Farmer has turned his work into an interactive photomontage that informs us of the life of lichen and its environmental indicators.


Farmer uses macrophotography as photo-documentation and says "lichen is like a 'canary in a coal mine' when it comes to warning us of pollution." Armed with his camera, computer and curious mind, Paul Farmer has studied this amazing organism and created a body of work that shares the smallest of details with the viewer.


Enjoy Farmer's work on display at the Iredell Arts Council beginning January 5th 2022 and ending January 28th. 

For his series, (G)li(T)chen, Farmer  received an Artist Support Grant from the North Carolina Arts Council.  

An artist reception will be held Wednesday, January 5th at 5:30pm. Public welcome.
