Meet Tara Fay

For today’s highlight, we’re sharing another exciting video featuring the artists in the Counterpressures exhibition! Counterpressures explores the climate crisis from the unique perspective of 10 Pittsburgh-area artists. As the world has come to grapple with other crises, we are highlighting how these artists have adapted their practice to working from home.

Artist Tara Fay has been practicing mindfulness while working on art that explores themes of race, identity, and personal narrative. In this video, she shares the books that inform her framework and leaves us with an inspiring message about remaining present in the moment. Stay tuned for more videos about the local artists featured in Counterpressures!

After watching the video, enjoy Tara Fay’s recent Storyboard essay in which she reflects on her shifting emotions and relationship with the world during her period of sheltering in place.
