Art Meets Agriculture

We’re a museum that reflects the history of local agriculture.

You’re an artist who has created something inspired by local agriculture.

You want to show your work to the public.

We have display space.

Seriously, is this a perfect match or what?

The Creston Museum is hosting an Art Meets Agriculture exhibit this summer.

It starts with half a dozen panels highlighting significant developments in local agricultural history, hung on the walls of an otherwise-empty room. Add in an eclectic mix of work from local artists, all revolving around the local-agriculture theme. Finally, put a table filled with art and craft supplies in the middle of the room and invite Museum visitors to add to the exhibit.

What could be more fun than that?

If you would like your work to be part of Art Meets Agriculture, here’s what you need to know:

• Installation will begin on April 26, 2017, and the exhibit will be open to the public until September 16. Artists are invited to exhibit their work for any or all of that period.
• All kinds of artwork are welcome. The Museum’s technological resources are extremely limited, so please be prepared to bring your own if your work requires it.
• Space is very flexible. In addition to the exhibit room itself, we are willing to install pieces throughout the rest of the Museum. Please contact us early if your work is particularly large.
• Your work will remain on display throughout the summer, unless you choose to remove it earlier. However, it may move from one spot to another within the exhibit, or within the Museum, as work is added or removed. The Museum will decide where and how each piece is displayed.
• Whether your work is for sale or not is entirely up to you. If you choose to sell your work, you set the price. The Museum will handle the sale, collect and remit the PST, and retain 10% commission. The Museum does not collect or remit GST.
• In order to create an eclectic, assorted, vibrant, intriguing, fascinating exhibit, we ask that you choose a maximum of three pieces to exhibit at any one time. You are, of course, welcome to change pieces periodically over the summer.
