Cultivator is pleased to present an exhibition by Tom Torluemke at Bray Grove Farm. Known for his intense paintings, sculptures, and installations addressing socio-political themes, he is equally adept depicting his love of nature and the environment. Torluemke will spend several days painting plein-air at Bray Grove Farm, then the pieces will be displayed in situ during our event. Given his mastery at harnessing the activities of a moment in time, we look forward to the paintings resulting from his experiences on our farm.
Please rsvp and join us on Monday, Memorial Day, May 28th from 2-5pm for art and conversation. Bray Grove Farm is located 70 miles southwest of Chicago in Grundy county. To confirm your attendance and receive directions and parking information, email email@example.com.
