A Tradition Since 1994. The primary function of the Celebrate Agriculture with the Arts Competition and Exhibition is to promote a broader interest in and understanding of agriculture as an industry while showcasing and promoting professional artists in a unique format of exemplary quality. This competition and exhibition was originally funded by a 1994 California Arts Council grant. That first year Madera County Arts Council participated in the statewide California Countryside Festival with agricultural themed art by professional artists of the San Joaquin Valley. It was a resounding success! In 1995, Madera County Arts Council established the agricultural themed art competition and exhibition as an annual event and by 1997, all California Artists were invited to participate. Now in its 28th year, this event continues to grow and inspires artists, patrons, and the public to Celebrate Agriculture!
