Art About Agriculture will feature art by over 50 artists working in both two and three dimensional media who create art that in some way draws its inspiration from our agricultural heritage and/or contemporary agriculture. That inspiration includes, but is not limited to, depictions of rural life and landscapes, farm animals, farm work, and farm products. Art that in a more abstract way deals with issues and ideas related to agriculture is also displayed.
The Ag Art Alliance was formed in 2007 by Gail Pidduck and John Nichols to promote a greater appreciation of the place of agriculture in our lives by revealing the many facets of agriculture through the eyes of artists. Both museums are pleased to support this vision.
