Annie Varnot — A.I.R. at Weir Farm Art Center

It’s my first week at Weir Farm…the space is perfect for my artistic thoughts and practice. I have been here two nights and two days. I live by myself in a farm cottage and in the driveway is a newly renovated barn to serve as my studio. The studio is awesome at approximately 400 square feet with cathedral ceilings, temperature control, a huge bathroom, modern deck overlooking a wooded stream (it’s dried up right now), lovely sky high windows, workable walls, gray cement floor, and incredible acoustics. The AIR residency is across the street from the Weir Farm Visitors Center, atop a hill, surrounded by acres of trails and gardens. I am working on an installation involving pipe cleaners, drinking straws, sushi grass, and monofilament. It is huge, in the round, and very exciting to see and work on! I will upload pictures soon.
