Happy 2017 from all of us at Farmboy Fine Arts (FBFA)! We hope you’ve had a relaxing, rejuvenating, and inspiring holiday season. At FBFA we aim to provide our clients with regional character through an international lens by maintaining strong connections to the international fine art market. By bringing this awareness into every project, even our regional projects are world class. In order to deliver meaningful and relevant art collections, our Farmhands must explore the world to gain authentic experiences. This holiday season was no exception.
Artist and Curation Manager, Felicity Carter, sought a rural and rustic experience, escaping to a cabin in the snow-covered mountains in Vernon, BC, to connect with nature, good friends, and her camera, along with a furry photographer’s assistant. Also seeking a Canadian winter experience was Account Manager Halley Brolly, who spent the holidays in BC’s Manning Park at a ski chalet, surrounded by close family and with a winter wonderland at her fingertips.
But not all Farmhands love sweaters and arctic temperatures. Many took flight to bask in the sun this December. Designer Rafaella Petrolacci went home for the holidays to Nice, France, taking in the breathtaking vistas of the Mediterranean Sea. Marketing Coordinator Solana Rompré swapped hemispheres for an unbelievable experience in Cape Town, South Africa, complete with a drive-by wild Zebra spotting.
Our Australian transplant, Special Projects Manager Jessica Desmond, set off to re-create a traditional “Aussie Christmas” featuring sun and beach. She found Mexico the ideal location without having to travel all the way home. Beach was also high on the list of priorities for Director of Account Management, Dana Bay, who wanted to experience the island lifestyle and atmosphere where many of her projects take place: Hawaii.
Cheers to 2017! May it be filled with travel that allows you to experience art everywhere.
