(PRWEB) September 23, 2013

The beauty of agriculture will once again be on display as the Madera County Arts Council once again Celebrates Ag with the Arts.

“2013 marks our 20th year highlighting the agricultural heritage of Central California through the works of California artists,” said Dr. Diane Rich with the council.

Numerous works of art depicting the agricultural way of life for many San Joaquin Valley Residents will be on display at Madera’s Circle Gallery from October 2 through November 16.

Photographs, paintings, sculptures and more have been submitting in various categories including Dairy, Livestock and Poultry, Farm Machinery and Structures, Fruits and Nuts, Irrigation, Row and Field Crops and Vegetables and Vines and “Celebrate Agriculture…the Human Factor”, which celebrates human’s role in agriculture.

A special category for the Madera Pomegranate Festival was included once again this year, with selected entries being featured at the third annual Pomegranate Festival taking place at the Madera Airport on November 2.

Members of the Madera County Arts Council say they were excited by high level of participation for showcase.

“This year’s show will have something for every interest. About 100 pieces were accepted from almost 200 entries,” said Dr. Martha Mossman with the arts council.

The exhibit kicks off with a free reception and awards ceremony on October 2 from 5:30 to 7:30 pm taking place at Circle Gallery. A total of about $5000 in prize money will be given to winning artists in each category.

Circle Gallery is located at 1653 N Schnoor, #113 in Madera. For more information, call 559-661-7005.
