More than 20 local farmers show off their art at East Austin exhibit opening this weekend
You can learn a lot by looking at the world through the eyes of a farmer.
Rain, soil, seeds, squash. Tools and textures. Texans who grow food have a particular way of seeing agriculture, from how produce and meat move through the food system and how we store them. For the seventh year, Prizer Arts and Letters is hosting an exhibit featuring art from local farmers called Farmer as Artist.
The opening reception, which is free and open to the public, is from 6 to 9 p.m. on Saturday at the gallery at 2023 E. Cesar Chavez St. If you can't make the reception but would like to see the exhibit, you can reach out to gallery director Carrie Kenny to schedule a visit.
This year's show will feature works from more than 20 local grocers, including Carol Ann Sayle of Boggy Creek Farm and Tim Miller of Millberg Farm, as well as farmers at Johnson’s Backyard Garden, Munkebo Farm, Middle Ground Farm, Farmshare Austin, Reverse Pioneers, Emadi Acres Farm, Get Well Farms, Eden East Farm, Burro Malo Farm and Ironbridge Farm.
