Through the month of August, an art exhibition will take place at the Firehouse Art Center, and another at the Muse Gallery, showcasing the work of 40 artists from across the front range who have been working with farmers to produce work inspired by local farms and farmers.T

It’s a fascinating project that brings together two of things that make this region to vibrant – art and farm-to-table food. “It’s a fresh take on the traditional farm-to-table perspective that brings the rich history of farming in our community to life through art, while supporting the future of the arts in Longmont,” says Joanne Kirves, Executive Director, Arts Longmont.

The collaborative venture between the two galleries and the many artists and farms will featured juried pieces of work that aim to capture the essence and story of each farm. 14 different farms took part.

“We’ll also have local chefs creating scrumptious recipes using product supplied from local farms,” says Jessica Kooiman, Executive Director, Firehouse Art Center. The winner will be announced and featured at the August 22 benefit.
