It is an exhibition with a five panel jury that pared the more than 200 pieces submitted to 65 by 35 artists. I have two. My painting "Dine Out" an acrylic painting on a 12x24 canvas is shown here. Not shown here, Carpenter Hill; Orchard and Vineyards received the Carey L. & Glen S. Strome Purchase Award and will remain at OSU as part of the Permanent Art About Agriculture Collection. In both paintings I chose imagery that reflected the importance of family farming and small local businesses to the process of food delivery now more than ever during the pandemic. Family farms and area food trucks are associated with good quality and fresh ingredients. They provide avenues for purchasing groceries and eating out that help us meet our needs while social distancing as we care for our health and find pleasure in experiencing new tastes and easy shopping.
Both paintings can be seen and "Dine Out" can be purchase by going to the Art About Agriculture website or visiting the gallery by appointment through Oct. 31, 2020. https://agsci.oregonstate.edu/art/art-about-agriculture
