To celebrate and be inspired by agricultural bounty and by people who are part of food and agriculture communities, the College of Agricultural Sciences at Oregon State University is organizing its 31st annual Art About Agriculture exhibition for 2013, embracing artistic perspectives on the theme, Bounty and Community – Beginning with Food and Agriculture. The College convened a committee of art professionals to nominate artists living in the Pacific Northwest region for this invitational.

Consumers, farmers, marketers, and purveyors of food in association with restaurants, grocery stores, food cooperatives, farmers’ markets, or roadside stands – all these together with agricultural bounty are the heart of the 2013 Art About Agriculture theme. The College invited seventeen artists to participate in the exhibition, and asked them – in creating and selecting their art – to consider people, places for coalescing around the availability of food and agricultural products, and relevant ideas and communities.
