Images of Small Town and Rural Midwest
April 27- June 2, 2018

Artists are invited to submit entries for Heartland, an exhibit of images of
and about life in and around small towns, farms, and rural areas.
Views of time spent away from urban concerns. Memories of
 earlier, less complicated days. Reflections on the beauty,
pace, responsibilities and rewards of living
beyond the city's boundaries.
