How We Grow Our Food art show at Bennett Vineyards & Wine

A group of local artists have come together to help showcase and educate the public with a collaborative show called “How We Grow Our Food”. HWGOF is the brainchild of artist Carolyn Johnson-Bell, originally from Portland, Oregon. Says Carolyn, “I grew up in the city, but I’ve always had a garden. I’m really passionate about the topic of showing how food is grown. So many people don’t really know where the food they eat comes from, or how it is grown.” The show seeks to use art to educate and enlighten diverse portions of our public audience about how food is grown, by depicting the items still attached to the tree, vine or bush as they are growing in their natural state. This is something many people seldom or never see, and often don’t appreciate. “We also wanted the work to entertain and inspire others by showing how simply beautiful our food is when seen through artists’ eyes”, says Carolyn, “And, above all, to encourage community and promote connections. We are doing this by celebrating our similarities instead of our differences and by having common ground exposure and experiences with different types of people, and artists who have never worked together, but have a common love of growing things and the beauty of nature.”
