Eva G. Farris Art Gallery

The Burning Ones
By: Anthony Becker

Since graduating from Yale in 1981, Anthony Becker has been challenging himself to truly “see things and causes” in the world around him. Working in a wide range of materials from rusty metal, wire and wood, to oil paint and paper, he has made large tetanus inducing nests, flocking bird installations, and ruined angels. Anthony Becker has exhibited throughout the country, including notable shows at the Carnegie Visual and Performing Arts Center, Spertus Museum in Chicago, Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden, The Weston Art Gallery, The Dayton Art Institute, and Creon Gallery in New York City. He teaches community education at the Art Academy and works with high school students in the Taft Museum’s ARC program. Recently, he collaborated with children of all ages on House, an installation at Prairie Gallery. He also works with the artists at Visionaries and Voices, often collaborating with one of their members for Double Vision.

History

On June 21, 2007, Thomas More College unveiled the naming of the new Art Gallery as the "Eva G. Farris Art Gallery." Over 150 friends attended the celebration, which was a surprise to the honoree as part of the annual Thomas More College Foundation Event. After the unveiling, friends dined in the Thomas More Library and had an opportunity to tour the Gallery where a student exhibit was on display.

"For some individuals, giving of their time and resources comes naturally. Eva Farris is one of these special individuals," said Sister Margaret Stallmeyer, former president of Thomas More College. "She not only gives financial support to numerous organizations, but she serves as a committed and passionate volunteer throughout the community."

A portrait of Eva Farris, painted by Thomas More graduate, Taylor Stephenson '07, hangs on the entry wall of the Gallery. Ms. Stephenson is one of two Thomas More art graduates whose work was selected in a national competition to be displayed at Manifest Gallery in Cincinnati.
