About Celebrate Agriculture with the Arts:

Celebrate Agriculture with the Arts Competition and Exhibition promotes a broader interest in and understanding of agriculture as an industry while showcasing and promoting professional artists in a unique format of exemplary quality. This competition and exhibition was originally funded by a 1994 California Arts Council grant. That first year Madera County Arts Council participated in the statewide California Countryside Festival with agricultural themed art by professional artists of the San Joaquin Valley. It was a resounding success! In 1995, Madera County Arts Council established the agricultural themed art competition and exhibition as an annual event and by 1997 all California Artists were invited to participate. Now in its 25th year, this event continues to grow and inspires artists, patrons and the public to celebrate agriculture!
