Fort Wayne artist Patrice Farmer explores her Puerto Rican heritage through her creations (With video)

She uses recycled materials to make her art

Thursday, October 24, 2013 - 12:01 am

Patrice Farmer explores her Puerto Rican heritage in an art exhibit opening 6-9 p.m. Friday at 3R Gallery, 111 Three Rivers East, which is on the back side of Three Rivers Apartments' East Tower.

A Detroit native who moved to Fort Wayne four years ago, Farmer grew up without any celebration of her half-Puerto Rican heritage. She began exploring it in her 30s, and her art, which is made of recycled materials, has become a journey of self-discovery.

Her exhibit, "Outsider Art: The Soul of Puerto Rico," will be on display through Nov. 17.

Regular gallery hours are 5-7 p.m. Fridays, 3-5 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays, and by appointment by calling 493-0913.
