Local Art Contest Highlights Agriculture

Mag_Perez_Springtime-ColorsDriving east to Ventura from Santa Clarita, residents can see how important agriculture is to California from the orange groves to the strawberry fields. The Ag Art Alliance is holding an art contest to showcase agriculture in art.

Artists are invited to submit their work for the 2010 Ag Art Alliance Art About Agriculture Exhibit that will run from August 21 to January 30, 2011 at the Santa Paula Art Museum. The opening reception will be held from 4 to 6 p.m. on Saturday, August 21.

The Ag Art Alliance was formed in 2007 by Gail Pidduck and John Nichols. The purpose of the exhibit is to promote art about agriculture by exploring all the facets of agriculture from workers to water, from machinery to fields and to the food that goes on our plates.

The first group exhibit of art about agriculture was held as part of Ag Classic 2007 at the Ventura County Fairgrounds. Almost 50 artists participated in this two day event to showcase Ventura County agriculture.

In 2008 the California Oil Museum hosted the group exhibit for two months and hundreds of museum visitors were exposed to the beauty of art about agriculture.

With the opening of the new Santa Paula Art Museum the Ag Art Alliance found a fitting venue for the 2010 Art About Agriculture exhibit.

Entrants must be over the age of 18 to be eligible. Styles of work that will be considered are paintings, drawings, photography, sculptures, mixed media, ceramics, batik, metals and tapestries.

Artists can submit a maximum of three works and should not exceed 150 pounds and 36” x 48”. Any art intended to be hung must be framed and ready hanging.
