From Field to Fork:
A Members Exhibition

From Field to Fork showcases MBPAPA members' plein air and plein-air-inspired paintings of local agricultural activities.

Natividad Medical Foundation, along with Comerica Bank, are sponsors of this invitational exhibition PLEIN AIR ART: FROM FIELD TO FORK for MBPAPA member artists that wished to participate.

The Agricultural Leadership Council (TALC), a philanthropic organization, cooperated in this effort by allowing our artist members to create paintings of their private ranch and farm lands, as well as their agricultural processing plants.
