Greg Thompson Fine Art: Mike Disfarmer

I've already gotten word from one gallery-goer that the exhibition of 40 vintage Disfarmer photographs at Greg Thompson Fine Art is a must-do. Argenta ArtWalk reception for the show, "Disfarmer: Prints from a Lifetime," is tonight from 6-8 p.m. (note: an hour start later than other ArtWalk venues).

Jennifer Carman, a Little Rock art appraiser, is both curator and sponsor; the works are for sale. She'll give a talk about the work and screen the biopic "Disfarmer: A Portrait of America" later in April.

Mike Disfarmer was a Heber Springs misanthrope and photographer; his straight-on, unadorned studio shots of Cleburne County folk at the early part of the 20th century blew up a few years ago in New York galleries. Read more here.
