Versatile artist Claire Farrell’s work will be on display at the Columbia’s City Art Gallery until July 27.

Her oil paintings and recent mixed media pieces will be on display.

“More traditional in nature are her oil paintings,” according to a release.

The subject matter of these paintings ranges from figure painting to the landscape of the Carolinas and Italy.

Her exhibit’s mixed media printmakings – something she has been experimenting with for the past several years – are inspired by a recent interest of her.

The series is called “The Wright Stuff.” They are influenced by Frank Lloyd Wright, his student Fay Jones and artists and architects that influenced him.

“These works in no way replicate the work of the great master but are simply an attempt to employ some of his ideas and designs in a different medium and in an unexplored way,” a release stated.

Monotype, chine collé, collage, solar plate etching and drawing are some of her techniques that she uses for her work on paper.

Farrell went to Duke University and the University of South Carolina. She also attended

Santa Raparata Art School in Florence, Italy, and Penland School of Art in North Carolina to study printmaking.

The gallery is located at 1224 Lincoln St. It is open Mondays to Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Fridays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
