About the Artist
Peggy Thurston Farrell, an assistant professor of art at Carroll University since 1991, has been extensively exhibited and collected. She holds a Master of Fine Arts degree from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. Over the years, her art has evolved from the twodimensional print medium to collaged, painted, and silkscreened three-dimensional paper and wood constructions.
Her work has been shown in both solo and group exhibitions across the United States, Peru, Japan, and locally, including the Milwaukee Art Museum, Tory Folliard Gallery, and the Wisconsin Painters and Sculptor’s Biennial. Peggy’s current works are colorful and exciting collages of painted and silkscreened papers. Much of her work explores the concepts of containment and the interaction of the inner and outer worlds of structures.
