Working the Land: Arizona Farming and Ranching Families
The exhibition Working the Land: Arizona Farming and Ranching Families features four local Arizona artists: Scott T. Baxter, Gina DeGideo, Jay Dusard, and Jill Ison, making contemporary photographic work of farming and ranching families and individuals, still working in Arizona.
Whether it is through the viewpoint of their own family’s lives, documenting others, or from conversations with historical photographs, each artist has worked closely for years with the people in the photographs to show a dynamic look at their lives, rarely seen by the common passerby
The exhibition will be held at Cattle Track Art Gallery and will be part of PhotoTapas – February photography month in Arizona. The exhibition runs from January 19th to February 14th, 2016, with a Closing Reception on Sunday, February 14th, from 1 to 4pm.
Cattle Track Art Gallery
Cattle Track Arts Compound was built in 1937 and since then has been home to several well-established Arizona artists, such as Philip Curtis, a founder of the Phoenix Art Museum. Today, printmakers, sculptors, painters, photographers, a blacksmith, and others live and work on the property. The Cattle Track Art Gallery features original artwork from artists worldwide. To learn more visit the gallery at 6105 N. Cattle Track Road in Scottsdale or call (480) 420-4281.
PhotoTapas encourages collaboration and communication among galleries, photography-oriented organizations, and independent photographers within Arizona and beyond. The intent is twofold: to promote the art of photography throughout Arizona, and to celebrate the medium by offering the community a diverse sampling of engaging photography-related activities and events such as exhibitions, lectures, seminars, workshops, demonstrations and portfolio sharing.
