Reception: Thursday, September 15th, 2022 5:30pm-7:30pm Artist Talk: 6pm
Condon’s 26 paintings, a series entitled “American Pastoral” present the vast rural views in hauntingly beautiful depictions where farms and their landscapes almost melt off the paper in an echo of the change in rural landscape as it shifts from family farm to industrial agri-business.
Ortner-Blake takes an intimately detailed look at family farming in her work. Through the eyes of her nonagenarian mother, her richly detailed paintings illustrate the Midwest Family farm life of the 1930s through the ‘70s.
