More information about the show:
Hailing from the small mountain town of Heber Springs, Arkansas, the photographer known as Mike Disfarmer captured the lives and emotions of rural Arkansans in starkly intimate portraits. Biting and delicate, his portraits span the years 1939 to 1945 and reflect the mood at the height of the Great Depression, the dramatic shifts during the war years, as well as the transformations of postwar prosperity. The photographs in this exhibition were printed from the original glass plates, recovered in the 1970s from Disfarmer’s studio.
Open Friday, October 9 through Sunday, October 25
Closed Friday October 23 through Wednesday, October 2
