November brings Linda Packard to the Weir Farm Artist-in-Residence program. Linda’s work is expressive, responding to direct observation in nature. She has a personal relationship with trees. She often treats trees as figures, gestural and dancing. She was deeply moved by two 2014 art shows in New York in which the artists used trees either as the subject or as a source of expression. Since then, it has been her goal to produce a major body of work exploring her personal expression of 'tree.'
Weir Farm's Artist-in-Residence program (AIR) selects twelve artists to live and work at Weir Farm each year. To date, over 200 artists from throughout the U.S., as well as Tunisia, Germany, Australia, India and the Netherlands have participated in the AIR program. Visual artists apply for one month residencies in all media and diverse artistic points of view from traditional to experimental.
