When Farmer’s Paint…or Artist’s Farm…A Panel discussion on Art and Farming.
Saturday, July 23 at 1:30 All welcome. Refreshments served.
Do you wonder if Art matters? Does it contribute to ongoing discussion and awareness of important issues of our times? Well, some artists do wonder and we are going to talk about it! We would like to invite you to be part of the discussion.
On Saturday, July 23 at 1:30 all are invited to a Panel discussion on “Art & Farming: Is anyone looking? “ to be held at the Fraser Cultural Centre in Tatamagouche.
Common are images of farming that are nostalgic, reminiscent of times past. It evokes a romantic notion of the daily commitment that is farming. But is that all there is? Join us as we talk about the contribution artist -farmers make when they bring their values and experience to their work. And does it raise the important issues we need to be aware of in the 21st century. Art is political. Or is it?
