The work of seven hand-picked artists is on display at Sherman County Public/School Library in the 31st year of an Oregon State University exhibit inspired by agriculture and its bounty.
The show, now open, will run through Tuesday, Sept. 24.
This year’s work explores agricultural bounty and natural resources. The artists hail from Oregon and Washington.
One of the artists, Sally Finch of Portland, created four abstract pieces depicting rainfall graphs of dry land farming. She used graphite and acrylic ink. Robert Schlegel of Banks painted “Grain Elevator” in acrylic on panel.
“Art About Agriculture” was created in response to a need to develop a bridge between rural and urban Oregonians,” said OSU Professor Gwil Evans. He wrote the original grant proposal that funded the inaugural exhibit in 1983.
Art in this exhibit has been selected from the College of Agricultural Sciences, Oregon State University, Art About Agriculture permanent collection.
