The year round project of the Yolo Arts Art and Ag Project climaxed in the Art Farm Gala at the Hotel Woodland in Woodland, CA. The farmers and ranchers opened up their gates for artists to interpret the beautiful landscapes around the areas. It’s a way of preserving the land.
The Art Farm Gala is the collections of all the artworks done at the farms through out the year. There are two exhibits, the Art Harvest, where buyers purchased a $225 ticket “shovel” to harvest a painting. And in the Silent Auction, artworks juried in by Diana Daniels of the Crocker Museum, were auctioned off.
I’m happy to say that “Cloverleaf Farm” was shoveled and harvested. And the juried “Oakdale Farm” was sold in the Silent Auction. But what was nice to hear that Diana Daniels, the juror would had love to buy Oakdale Farm herself.
