farmer photo show - sf, ca
I'm very excited to announce the opening of "A Sense of Place," a photography show dedicated exclusively to the works of beginning farmers from across the nation! The opening party and farmer mixer is this Saturday, February 5th, from 5-7 pm at the 18 Reasons gallery. Come see the works, meet new friends and farmers, link up with the young farmer-activists the Greenhorns, and enjoy the sounds of Davyd Nereo and Winnie Bird. There will be locally-grown treats and a cash bar; the event itself is free.
Many of the images of farms that we, as consumers of media, are exposed to are often taken by outsiders with no anchors in the land they photograph. In selecting works created by new agrarians who are emotionally rooted in their environment we seek to unearth a deeper layer of the changing landscape of agriculture.
Exhibition Dates: February 3- March 31st, 2011
