Date:Saturday, April 8, 2017
Time:7 p.m.
Location:    Warkworth Arts and Heritage Centre (35 Church Street, Warkworth)
This work focuses on documenting the Canadian sub-culture of farmers on family-run farms. In this series of portraits, the subjects are photographed in their own environment, capturing them at time in Canadian history that is pivotal not only to their industry but also to their culture. “Farmer: Portraits of Family Farms in Northumberland County”, explores the imprint of the worked landscape on the faces of the people that have stewarded the land for generations. This project is a significant shift both creatively and technically in Gary Mulcahey’s practice. See SPARK website for exhibition hours of operation. Exhibition continues until April 30th.
