Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction presents THE FARM, a narrative exhibition documenting daily life and new initiatives at the Art in the Age Farm in Tamworth, NH. Robin McDowell, the exhibiting artist and Art in the Age’s Farm Manager, will present personal anecdotes, photographs, salvaged objects, and new letterpress prints.
In addition to meeting the everyday challenges of life in a rural outpost, we have taken on the mission of restoring our 200-year-old, 72-acre farm property to its former working glory as an abundant homestead. We are fostering local partnerships and initiating projects to conserve this incredible parcel of natural resources and wildlife habitats. We are also working to responsibly improve soil health without the use of any chemicals and explore the production of our own organic produce.
In our new role as land stewards, we are proud to share our plans and progress with the Art In The Age Community! THE FARM will elucidate the reverent relationship we have formed with the values and time-honored skills upon which the farm was settled so long ago.
Robin McDowell is an artist and former resident of Philadelphia, PA. She studied Printmaking at the University of Pennsylvania and currently maintains two blogs in addition to managing the farm. For more information, go to: robinboeun.com and ornamentandcrime.blogspot.com
