The agriculture-inspired art of more than 50 Yolo County artists will be on display this month at Gallery 625 in the County Administration Building, 625 Court St. in Woodland.

The artwork in this annual exhibition was created during and after farm visits coordinated by YoloArts as a part of its Art & Ag Program.

A reception Friday honors the arts and features music by Keys and Breeze, a piano and flute duo, beginning at 7 p.m.

Ten farm visits were organized last year and showcased the diversity of farming from the delta region around Clarksburg to the westernmost tip of the Capay Valley of Yolo County. The Art & Ag Program has been supported by a grant from the James Irvine Foundation and through a partnership of YoloArts, the Yolo Land Trust and the Davis Farmers Market Foundation.

Recently, it received recognition from ArtPlace as a national example of “creative placemaking,” or using the arts as a key component of community and economic development.

The “Art Farm” exhibition will feature watercolors, photographs, oil and acrylic paintings, fiber, rock art and ceramics inspired by farm visits. All of the art on exhibit will be available for “harvesting” at the annual fundraiser Friday, Nov. 4, for purchase on the silent auction tables. For more on this event, visit www.yoloarts.org.

Regular Gallery 625 viewing hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays. For more, call YoloArts at (530) 406-4844 or visit www.yoloarts.org.
