Biography from Trailside Galleries:
Gerald Farm is an artist of distinctly American tradition whose work has appropriately earned him the honor of being dubbed “The Norman Rockwell of the West”.

Born in Grand Island, Nebraska in 1935, Farm is a storyteller who paints Western nostalgia in oils. “I am a painter of the moods of people”, he explains, “and the story that is in them. I thoroughly enjoy painting people. It’s always great fun to try and capture the many emotions people are capable of. Many of my models are from the local area, although I may change them slightly to show more expression – or to add a mustache so the character adds ore to the painting.”

After graduating from high school, Farm spent four years in the Navy. Part of the time was as an illustrator in Washington D.C. where he completed the Famous Artist Course in commercial art in 1958. He earned his B.S. in art education from Nebraska State College in 1961, taught at the high school level for a year and was an industrial art director for seven years before starting his career in fine arts when his wife “got a job teaching school to make it possible.”

In 1976, he traveled through Europe studying the old masters. He has since traveled to Mexico and Africa, and is listed in "Who’s Who is in American Art", and has been featured several times in "Southwest Art" magazine and "Art of the West" Magazine.

Each of Farm’s paintings has a story to tell and is designed as a conversation piece. The key is the models who “are selected with great care.” Like any good director, Farm scouts for actors to play parts in his stories. He goes to bars or hangs out in shopping malls near his home in Farmington, New Mexico. Occasionally, he and his wife, Shari, will go for a drive up to southern Colorado in search of memorable faces. Often he will visit a small restaurant in Aztec, New Mexico where old hands go for coffee and breakfast.

“Although the food isn’t the most wonderful,” he says, “It’ll hold you over while you sketch faces.” Wherever Farm finds them, one thing seems to be consistently true: the “actors” he meets are really characters themselves.
