The Ninth Annual Art About Agriculture features over 75 incredible artworks inspired by both historic and contemporary agriculture. The works on display pay tribute to the nobility of labor, the richness of the earth, and the natural beauty of our rural landscape. All art in the exhibition is for sale.
