State Sen. Lois Wolk, D-Davis, has announced that her Capitol office is hosting artwork inspired by the farmlands of Yolo County through Dec. 10. The artwork is the product of a YoloArts’ program that brings artists, farmers and community members together to raise awareness of the importance of preserving working landscapes, promoting sustainable agriculture and the visual arts in Yolo County.

Her office is in Room 5114 of the state Capitol on Capitol Mall in Sacramento. The phone number is 916-651-4003.

“I am honored to display this artwork, which embodies Yolo County’s efforts to strengthen understanding and appreciation of our agricultural heritage,” said Wolk, who sits on the Senate’s Agriculture Committee and chairs the Agriculture Subcommittee on Olive Oil Production and Emerging Products.

“I encourage my constituents to visit my office to see the exhibit and learn more about the people and the farms that grow the food we eat every day.”

YoloArts partners with the Yolo Land Trust, Yolo Farm to Fork, the Yolo County agriculture commissioner and local farms to offer the Art & Agriculture Project. Each year, from February through November, artists participate in farm visits that include a tour by a host farmer. The result is artwork inspired by the farms and fields of Yolo County.

“Our pioneering Art & Ag Project has already drawn the nation’s attention as a working model that helps city dwellers appreciate farmers, farming and the beauty of a working agricultural landscape,” said Dani Thomas, YoloArts executive director. “These public art commissions capture the essence of that program and express a unique sense of place that promotes both the artistic community, and supports a thriving agricultural economy.”

The project has received recognition from ArtPlace America and the James Irvine Foundation in the form of grants, and has been recognized by the National Endowment for the Arts. The program culminates in a monthlong “Art Farm” exhibition to increase community awareness of the value of art and the importance of farmland preservation. This year’s exhibition starts Oct. 4.

The exhibition will be followed on Nov. 1 by an “Art Harvest” fundraiser where people have an opportunity to appreciate local artists, as well as food and wine produced in Yolo County.
Entry forms for the sixth annual Art Farm Juried Exhibition & Art Harvest are available in Wolk’s office or at www.yoloarts.org/programs-and-services/art-ag-project. Entries must be received by 5 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 29.

In addition to the new works on display in Wolk’s office, paintings by Napa artist Beverly Wilson and Delta artist Deladier Almeida are also on exhibit.
