“How we grow” by Alexandra Farr | 6-9 pm

I do not try to grow flowers
from eyes that are dry,

I know we must first give water
to have life.

“How we grow” is a series of mixed media collages created by non binary artist Alex Farr that seeks to merge emotional growth, suffering, and desire with nature. It is an acknowledgment of our connectedness to the natural world — our earth body — and a plea for us to find healing both within ourselves and without.
