YoloArts’ upcoming Art Farm Harvest Gala will offer an art harvest, a diversity of locally raised meat, produce and wine, and the announcement of the exhibition’s juried award winners.

The event will run from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Friday at 709 Main St. in downtown Woodland. Featuring the work of more than 65 Yolo County artists, this collection of watercolors, photographs, oil and acrylic paintings, ceramic, stained glass and fiber art captures the essence of Yolo County’s rural county landscape.

This year’s Art Farm exhibition was juried by Rachel Teagle, director of the Shrem Museum of Art, currently under construction on the UC Davis campus. At Friday’s event, Teagle will be awarding three juried prizes: the Curator’s Pick, the Farmer’s Pick and the Blue Ribbon Artist. The prizes come with awards of $500 and $1,000. The juried exhibition was made possible, in part, by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.

Chefs from the Cache Creek Casino Resort will once again be commanding an “action station” where local ingredients will be prepared and served to eventgoers. Additional food offerings will be offered by Manas Meat Market and Ranch, Ludy’s, Kitchen 428, Full Belly Farms, Copperhill Olive Oil, Good Humus Produce, Farmer’s Kitchen Café and Natural Food Works, Caffé Italia and Henry’s Bullfrog Bees & Pure All Natural Honey.

Wine offerings are from Berryessa Gap Vineyards, Bogle Vineyards, Crew Wine Company, Capay Valley Vineyards, Route 3 Wines, Seka Hills Winery, Putah Creek Winery and Marr Cellars. Culligan Water is providing bottled water.

After the event, sparkling wine and cupcakes from Timothy’s Bakery will be served at five businesses in downtown Woodland, coinciding with the city’s monthly First Friday art walk.

The space that was formally the Daily Democrat newspaper print shop is being used for the Art Farm Harvest Gala. Guests will be welcomed at the roll-up doors at the warehouse entrance adjacent to Dead Cat Alley. Democrat Investors LLC owns the building and is refurbishing it for eventual multi-use.

Major event sponsors include Wilkinson International, Cache Creek Casino Resort — Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation, Edward Jones Investments, Foley Jones and Associates, Todd Montgomery CPA, Roth Ranch and UC Davis.

Doors to the event will open at 5:30 p.m. and live music by Jazz Gitan will be featured throughout the evening. Juror awards will be announced prior to the art “harvest” beginning at 7 p.m. For shovel owners, turns will be taken by drawing until all of the art has been harvested from the gallery walls. Shovels for art harvesting are $150 and provide entrance for two and the option to harvest an original work of art with a value of at least $150.

A silent auction also will be part of the evening’s activities. Tickets for only the food, wine and silent auction portion of the event are $25 per person in advance or $30 at the door. To purchase tickets, go to yoloarts.org/box-office or call 530-406-4844.

Proceeds raised by the Art Farm Art Harvest are used to support the Art & Ag program, the Yolo Land Trust and Yolo Farm to Fork. Both the Art Harvest and silent auction art can be viewed online at yoloarts.org.
