Farmiga has displayed her artwork at many solo exhibitions, including objects (2001) in New Orleans, 'Scape (2006) in Miami, and Versus (2012) in New York. In 2004, Farmiga was among a group of artists displaying their work in the exhibition The Reality of Things at Triple Candie in Harlem. In 2008, she received the Emerging Artist Fellowship from Socrates Sculpture Park.
In 2011, Farmiga worked as a curator and artist for her cousin Vera Farmiga's directorial debut film Higher Ground. That same year, her work appeared in Thisorganized, a group exhibit curated by painter Hope Gangloff, which was displayed at the Susan Inglett Gallery. In 2013, Farmiga was part of the Screen Play exhibition at the Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art in New Paltz. The following year, she was one of 16 artists chosen, from over 320 applicants, to display her work in the Worlds of Wonder exhibition, also shown at the Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art.
In December 2016, Farmiga's work as part of CIM began showing at the Ukrainian Museum, where it was exhibited until September 2017.
