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 32nd annual Art About Agriculture exhibition for 2014, embracing artistic perspectives on the theme, Agricultural Bounty and Community in the City and in the Town. The College convened a committee of art professionals to nominate artists living in the Pacific Northwest for this invitational.
The College invited the thirteen artists listed below 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 concepts relevant to agricultural bounty and community in cities, towns, and villages.
