September 9 - October 14, 2017
Opening Reception: Saturday, September 9, 2-5 p.m.
In March of this year, Tom Maakestad received an Artist Initiative Grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board. In his grant proposal, Maakestad wrestled with the changing models of farming and their impact on the environment. Raised in rural Northfield in a family of artists among a community of farmers, Maakestad has worked to reconcile scenes from his idyllic farm upbringing with the mass production farming more present today.
