Sponsored by the OSU College of Agricultural Sciences

The 38th annual Art About Agriculture Competition and Touring Exhibition at Oregon State’s College of Agricultural Sciences presents a remarkable selection of artworks by Oregon artists that draw inspiration from food, fiber, and natural resources.

In reflecting on the numerous challenges of 2020, the Art About Agriculture program decided to create an open call for art that felt inclusive to all expressions of agriculture in artistry; this year’s theme is simply art about agriculture. Artworks selected by blind jury feature topics ranging from seafood to scenic landscapes, family farms to farmer’s markets, and powerful reflections on last year’s wildfires. Mediums on display include acrylic and oil painting, watercolor, drawing, mixed media, collage, printmaking, photography, textile art, sculpture, glass, and artist’s book.
