Trumansburg Art Show Features Farm + Auto

Orlando Arriaga, "The Cows are Back," (cropped detail of original photo) 2021, Archival Digital Pigment Print, 14 x 11 in
FARM + AUTO is a contemplation of the changing socio-economic landscape in America, fueled by the Industrial Revolution that gave us the automobile and, in turn, aspirations for a different kind of life. In this collection of photographs, sculptures, and artifacts at the Trumansburg Conservatory of Fine Arts, they explore the impact of modernization on America’s agricultural heritage, consider the evolution of deeply American ideals of freedom and personal liberty, and redirect attention to the high environmental costs of this shift.
Featuring work from a diverse group of creators, Farm + Auto explores our connection to the land through the lens of the farm and/or the automobile.

Participating artists include Orlando Arriaga, Michael Ashkin, Kenneth C. Burkhart, Carrie Chalmers, Lindsey Glover, Christina Leung, Jerry Lim, Joseph Podlesnik and Constance Saltonstall.

The show runs through March 24, with gallery hours on Fridays and Sundays, 1 to 5 p.m.

Note from the curator, Lindsey Glover:
Lindsey Glover comes from a long line of farmers and auto-mechanics, and this theme was of personal interest to her. The idea for the exhibition came from an article she read about a recent New York State law mandating that all repurposed tires used on farms be cut or drilled to prevent water build-up and mosquito nesting. It made me consider the resourcefulness of farmers, how farming has changed in the last century-plus (and will continue to change), and our collective role in preserving our land and natural resources in the face of climate change.
