Midwest farming changes constantly. In our lifetimes there is a shift from small acreage family farms to two extremes: to both the very large and very small farms. The state of Wisconsin alone is losing more than two family farms per day.
These changes in the Midwest landscape—physically and economically—moved artists Roberta Condon and Lorraine Ortner-Blake to present together two series of paintings to focus on the struggles, joys, and challenges of Midwest farm life. The exhibit is titled ”Long Time Passing,” a phrase from a Pete Seeger song.
Join us for an incredibly moving presentation by the artists about their work and their personal experiences living and working in the rural midwest.
The presentation begins at 2.30 and will last approximately one hour. Please note you will be standing for one-half of the presentation as you move around the gallery. After the presentation attendees are invited to stay for refreshments and to meet the artists.
This event is free but space is limited. We are asking everyone wishing to attend to complete this form, to avoid disappointment.
