Hotel Vandivort – Art Walk Sponsor

 

Hotel Vandivort,  located at 305 E. Walnut St., a proud Art Walk sponsor, presents for the month of July, will be featuring paintings by Artist Farley Lewis.

 

“I enjoy the challenge of representing what I see and experience in simple, colorful ways, trying to capture its essence with streaks and daubs of paint. When I look down a creek at sunset, and watch the play of light on the ripples, something comes alive in me, something I try to capture for others. That is my joy as an artist. I believe beauty is powerful, whether in a painting, a song, a smile or a Savior. Good paintings are far more than pretty décor – they have power to create atmosphere, awaken dreams, and even stir a sleeping heart to life.”

 

Farley earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Missouri State University in 1985. He started and ran a sign shop and graphic design studio for fifteen years, doing some illustrations, paintings and murals, and some mural work for Bass Pro Shops. After serving as a pastor for 20 years – though still doing art on the side – he went full-time as an artist in January of 2018. Working in the studio and plein air, Farley also teaches painting classes and workshops. He lives with his amazing wife Kelly and one of his incredible five grown children in Springfield, Missouri.
