Kim Guare

Kim Guare is a mixed media artist and environmental activist with a passion to share what she has learned about the unethical way our food is produced today. Her artwork demonstrates her concern with our lack of knowledge for the source of the foods we buy and celebrates the beauty of organic whole foods. The subjects featured in her work are vegetables, fruits and farm animals. She shares her ideas, so one may enjoy the beauty of our food and be challenged by the way our food is being produced.

Kim Guare graduated from the American Academy of Art in Chicago in 2011 with a BFA in watercolor. Presently, the majority of her work consists of sculpture and fibers. Her work is greatly inspired by the organic produce of the farmers market and her time spent working on organic farms. She will be an Artist in Residence from May 20th to June 15th at Wormfarm Institute in Reedsburg, Wisconsin, where she will combine her two loves, farming and art.
