22nd Annual One-Man Show, February 1 - 28, 2007. "Visions of Rural America... reminds us that the traditional American farm and ranch is not an incidental part of our history. As our society moves from rural to urban, from fieldwork done by hand to mechanization, from family farms to corporate productions, we have become removed from the fields that grow our food and the pastures that graze our livestock... In his own words: 'My art allows me to regain a relationship I once had with the land. I feel a responsibility to portray a life style that was so good to me.'"
