New Farmers is a collaborative research project between photographer D. Bryon Darby, designer Tim Hossler, and sociologist Paul Stock. An observation of today's independent farmer, the project merges visual images with the print media of newspapers to explore and discuss contemporary farming. New Farmers aims to tell the story and empower the diversity of a new breed of first-generation, small-scale, sustainable farmer. Large-scale prints from the project pair with text that tells the story of these farmers. Visitors can take a copy of the “New Farmers” newspaper at the exhibition, which addresses the subjects of the work, food and farming on the Great Plains. More about the project can be found at

First Friday opening:Nov. 2, 5-7 p.m., with artist talk at 6 p.m.
