Visiting Artists Workshops

Esencial

Have you ever wondered how artists come up with ideas or how they work through the process of creating?  Join Farwell House Artist Resident Brianna Baurichter in learning her process of creating art and engage in conversation about how her piece Esencial affects you. This workshop is for all ages, but deals with the sensitive subject of death and grief. Parents please use your desecration.

The U.S. tends to have difficulty confronting the realities of life as it relates to death and the process of dying, leaving many to feel isolated and shamed into silence in their grief and trauma. After becoming a caregiver and ultimately losing my mother to cancer, I have made an effort to break down this silence through my artwork and researched others sharing this desire across industries. My developing body of work, Anticipatory|Después, aims to bridge these points of reference to create communal opportunities for healing, and an honest, open dialogue around dying and grief. In making my own experience vulnerable, I invite others to share their stories and offer insight for those close to carers and the bereaved to be more understanding of the challenges their loved ones face.
