The Agriculture & Art initiative aims to increase awareness and understanding of agriculture and farmland preservation through the visual arts.
Team Haverhill sponsors periodic events to promote its agriculture and arts mission. The most recent was the Ag & Arts Juried Art Exhibition, held at the Sage Art Gallery, 136 Washington St., Haverhill MA from September-October 2012. The show featured agricultural or farm-related pieces in any medium.
Many of the pieces at the show were inspired by visits to four private farms, which Team Haverhill sponsored so artists could experience a variety of agricultural landscapes in Haverhill.
Awards to the top three judged entries were presented at an art reception which also showcased locally grown agricultural products and wines.
