From The Pastoral to the Political

Country:

Food production, land use, and the building of community are interconnected themes. What is the relationship between the local food movement, farming and how we look at issues such as agribusiness, GMOs, and man-made chemicals? How has the preservation of land and natural resources become vital? The various local food movements found across the country have helped build their communities and created new economies.

This national juried exhibition seeks to explore the potential of artists within this dialogue. What do artists have to say about localism, how are they responding to these issues in their work, and what can contemporary art add to this discussion?

Exhibition Dates: Saturday, October 15th- Saturday November 12th, 2016

About:
Founded in Wakefield, Rhode Island in 1974, Hera Gallery/Hera Educational Foundation was a pioneer in the development of alternative exhibition spaces across the country in the 70s. Hera Gallery was one of the earliest women’s cooperative galleries in the US and is unusual in having been established in a non-urban setting. Although many of these galleries no longer exist, Hera is proud to have not only continued but also expanded our programs, exhibitions, and events.
