LONG TIME PASSING
April 18-August 1, 2021
Midwest farming changes constantly. In our lifetimes, there has been a shift from small acreage family farms to two extremes: to both 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. This exhibit, titled "Long Time Passing", is a phrase from a Pete Seeger song.
