    For the past ten years, photographer John Nichols and painter Gail Pidduck have curated the yearly display of agrarian-themed art. The idea for the show came from the pair’s shared reverence for local agriculture, and for the men and women who work the land. The Tenth Annual Art About Agriculture is on view November 11, 2017 through February 25, 2018.
