Directions Artist Installation

Ride Around


With this year’s installation, Evans and Farrell hope to both tease and amuse.  Ride Around is an attempt to play with, rather than fight, the maddening North Grand Pre wind.

Nicole Evans and Patrick Farrell

Nicole Evans first expressed herself in visual arts when she, Pat Farrell, and Terry Drahos created the mysterious Twig People of Wolfville. The year long adventure was so creatively fulfilling and so much fun that when she was approached to contribute to Uncommon Common Art she leapt at it. This is Evans' tenth installation for UCA, the last eight of which have been in partnership with Pat Farrell.


Patrick Farrell studied at the Vancouver School of Art and the Kootenay School of Art, opening a graphic arts studio after graduating.  He designed and built houses and taught art.  Upon moving east he returned to drawing and sculpting.  This is Farrell's eighth collaboration with Evans for Uncommon Common Art.
