Culture & Agriculture
Dates: June 29 - August 29, 2014
New Visions Gallery invites visitors to experience agriculture — the landscape, the people, the crops and the stories – as told through the eyes of artists at the 28th annual Culture & Agriculture exhibit. Artists throughout the United States offer unique and thoughtful interpretations of this rural theme and help us remember the rich culture and diversity that surrounds agricultural life. More than 60 works of art will be on display in New Visions Gallery from June 29 – August 29. The exhibit is sponsored by Holland’s Family Cheese and the Blue Heron Brew Pub.
Every Culture & Agriculture exhibit brings a new collection of work by a variety of artists, each of whom brings a fresh interpretation of technique, media, process and subject matter on agricultural themes. Participating artists hail from Oregon to New York and other points throughout the United States, including Wisconsin. Artists offer everything from traditional paintings, mixed media, classic renderings, breathtaking photography, mixed media sculpture and more. Artwork in the exhibit was selected by guest juror, David Wells, Director of the Edgewood Gallery in Madison, Wisconsin.
“One thing that makes this exhibit so special is that it becomes a forum — a union of voices with different backgrounds and experiences,” states Betsy Tanenbaum, New Visions Gallery Director, “Allan Savory, director of the Savory Institute, an organization dedicated to land management, states that ‘agriculture is the foundation of civilization’. We are all inherently connected to agriculture, whether we mean to be or not, because we would not exist without it.”
Culture and Agriculture will be on display from June 29 – August 29 and may be viewed Monday – Thursday 9:00 AM – 5:30 PM and Friday from 9:00AM – 4:00PM. New Visions Gallery is located in the main lobby of Marshfield Clinic, 1000 N Oak Avenue, Marshfield, WI. Admission is free thanks to donations from Art Partners. Exhibit space and other support is donated by Marshfield Clinic.
