With distinct pleasure, the Dane G. Hansen Museum is honored to hold the inaugural museum exhibition of The Farmin Artist, Thomas Zimmerman. If you are not familiar with this phenomenal photographer, you most rectify this at once. God paints the sky and The Farmin Artist photographs His handiwork. This exhibition is a breath-taking collection of mostly Kansas landscapes that pays homage to the beautiful state in which we are honored to live.
Thomas, an award-winning photographer and Kansas native, began as a portrait photographer. Wanting to grow as an artist, he began experimenting and made the outdoors his studio, capturing the countryside and the country sky. Based in Gove County, Thomas is a farmer/rancher giving him wide access to the subject he loves. He was a finalist in the USA National Landscape Photographer of the Year competition in the color view category and has sold prints to 19 different countries on 5 continents.
The magnificent photographs of our newest exhibit, The Farmin Artist on display until February 2, 2020, has visitors awestruck from the moment they step through the door. Rusty tractors, shabby farm sheds, and chilly Angus bulls become powerfully vibrant through the lens of Thomas Zimmerman, The Farmin Artist. Thomas’ intense style of photography creates a feeling of total immersion for his viewers, allowing you to wrap yourself up in a warm Kansas sunset, or shiver in the crusty snow as three bulls study you curiously. Each scene that Thomas captures is as unique as it is fascinating. Vivid colors and striking contrasts in a sea of agricultural scenes await you at the Dane G. Hansen Museum.
