Art about Agriculture exhibit opens in Corvallis

The 26th annual Art About Agriculture touring exhibition is open at LaSells Stewart Center's Giustina Gallery, 25th Street and Western Boulevard, on the Oregon State University campus in Corvallis.

The exhibition, which runs through April 27, has a theme that comes from a phrase coined by Henry David Thoreau in "Walden": "The Nick of Time."

This year's juried exhibit includes 53 works of art by 41 artists from Oregon and Washington.

There are works in acrylic, oil and watercolor paint, fiber, fused glass, wood engraving, linocut, wood block, etching, and photography.

"Many artists devoted their efforts to observing and recording the nature of time as it relates to the landscape - primarily the Pacific Northwest landscape - during the height of harvest season," said Shelley Curtis, curator of the annual exhibit.

After the Corvallis show, the exhibition will tour Oregon with stops in Madras, May 2 through 30; Baker City, June 6 through July 17, and Roseburg, July 25 through Sept. 6.
