I always love seeing the creativity of local farmers on display at Farmer as Artist.

That’s the name of the annual exhibit at Prizer Arts & Letters, the art gallery at 2023 E. Cesar Chavez, that showcases the artistic abilities of more than a dozen Central Texas farmers.

This is the fifth year for this show that explores the connections between farming and creativity. Farmers from Boggy Creek Farm, Millberg Farm, Tecolote Farm, Urban Roots, Johnson’s Backyard Garden, Munkebo Farm, Farmshare Austin, Genesis Gardens, Agua Dulce, Texas Hill Country Olive Co, EllenMental Acres and Sand Holler Farm created pieces for the show in a number of media, including sculpture and photographer.

The gallery is mostly open by appointment only, but the opening reception for this show is from 6 to 9 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 9. The pieces will be on display through Sept. 23. Proceeds from art sales to benefit Farmshare Austin.
