“The County has a rich history and a great future in its agriculture, from the early Barley Days to the present Grape Growing era,” notes Evelyn Sloane. “Works of art that celebrate this wonderful cornucopia of historical and pictorial uniqueness, the changing Autumn season, the wonders of harvesting in the County all around us will be exhibited.”
Jane Urquhart in her book the Sanctuary Line says that the first harvest is boulders, Sloane adds. “There can be many themes on a harvest. The wonderful crimson of the maple trees, the gold stands of wheat in a field, the threatening storm clouds that herald the gales of November, the kaleidoscope of colours of fruit and veggies at the local road side stands, the royal purple of grapes bursting with juice. Come celebrate the harvest with the art work on display.”
