This serendipitous collaboration we know as The Date Farmers, moves on a higher plane than most.  Their work has enough personality to make the gallery bounce with energy. That, combined with the bright yellow walls and a bad-ass Video Arcade machine, set  the scene for what some  opening reception attendees called a “Delicious” show.

The Arcade. Look closely and you can see "A Volta" playing on the screen.

The work  keeps you on your toes, they beguile you with bright colors and familiar icons, while smacking you lightly across the face with some honest social commentary.  A moral behind the story, if you will . It’s always fresh and gets the message across … and we love it.
