Working Land: New Rural Photographs by Jon Solinger
Aug 5 – Sep 5 all-day

This exhibit of photographs by artist Jon Solinger inspires contemplation of the past, present and future of rural life and work. By documenting his neighbors in Otter Tail County, MN, the artist captures a time, place and lifestyle for future generations. The body of work celebrates a transitional time in our region’s rural heritage and identity, when family farms are being renewed by new farmers or by returning and continuing generations transforming the land with new ideas. The exhibit’s portraits – of people, places and things – are visually elegant and heartfelt.
