SKG artist Mike Disfarmer is featured in the group exhibition, All of Arkansas: Arkansas Made, County by County, on view at the Arkansas Made Gallery through March 11, 2018.
Between 1915 and 1959, American studio photographer Mike Disfarmer (1884-1959) made portraits of the residents of Heber Springs, a small town in rural Arkansas. Only after his death did his work become known internationally and regarded as a typical example of classic American portrait photography. Foam is staging a major retrospective, with 182 vintage photographs, including a number of 8 x 10 inch prints that have never been exhibited before.
A new book on SKG artist Mike Disfarmer has been published. The book, "Disfarmer: Man Behind the Camera,” written by Kim Davis, is available for purchase at the Museum of the Arkansas Grand Prairie and on Amazon.
