Tonight is the opening reception for "Celebrate Agriculture", a yearly show sponsored by the Madera Arts Council. It is a unique show in many ways--limited to a theme that's always the same, and judged in agricultural categories but not by media. It's usually a spectacular show and I'm sure it will be no different this year. Come out and see it, but plan to visit more than once because you need time and space to take it all in. I was notified that I'm getting an award so I'll find out tonight which of my paintings was successful!
