Central Pivot Series – Volume I
Richard Saxton, Kurt Wagner & Kirsten Stoltz (Eds.)
The introductory volume in the exciting new Center Pivot Series from Colorado- based M12’s Last Chance Press curated by Kirsten Stoltz pulses with diverse rural American images, poems and writings. Pictures from M12 founder Richard Saxton’s Rural Research Archive and writings by Kurt Wagner focus on the nonheroic, psychic and lyrical unfolding of daily events and leave us in search of beauty hidden in plain sight. Saxton and Wagner are among a rare breed of artists who infuse the work with their own rural experiences, allowing no single genre to capture the whole of these intentions. This exciting new series archives the explorations of a growing community of artists and researchers drawn to the complexity of the rural experience, an arena in which art and environmental activism crosses. Pocket-sized and easy to travel with, Cool Pastoral Splendor includes drawings, photographs and hip accounts in the field by like-minded artists, musicians, poets and writers.
