The Yard Project, whose mission is to promote healthy living by preserving local agricultural lands and thus access to local sources of fresh food and produce, announced today its plans to hold a new kind of event, called “Articulture: Where Art Meets Agriculture.” The event will include an art gallery featuring works by seven local fine artists inspired by 16 local farms, and a farmers market.
“Farming is both an art and a science. We’ve found that there are artists on many local farms, so it appears the two forms of art go hand in hand,” said Mason Donovan, Founder of The Yard Project. “Articulture combines and celebrates both of these forms of art, and, as a result, the local economy as well.”
Articulture stems from two philosophies, according to Donovan: The “Locavore” movement, which promotes sustainability, healthy living and the local economy by promoting the purchase of food and produce from local sources, and “Art Locale,” a lesser-known movement that refers to purchasing art from local artists and by doing so, also helping the local economy and local arts programs to grow.
The event will be held on Saturday, June 9, 2012, from 1 to 6 p.m., at the Old Meeting House on Route 127 and Long Street in Webster. For more information, call 603-393-0335 or visit http://www.theyardproject.com/articulture.
