The exhibition Working the Land: Arizona Farming and Ranching Families features four local artists: Scott T. Baxter, Gina DeGideo, Jay Dusard, and Jill Ison, all making contemporary photographic work of farming and ranching families and individuals still working in Arizona.

Whether it is through the viewpoint of their own family life, documenting others, or from conversations with historical photographs, each artist has worked closely for years with the people in the photographs to show a dynamic look at their lives, rarely seen by the common passerby.
