The collection includes art by
Hanover, Ind., artist Bill Borden.

The regional artists include Bill Borden, Mark Burkett, Mary Ann Davis, Lynn Dunbar, Bob Farlow, Jeff Klinker, Ron Mack, Nancy Maxwell, Carol Strock-Wasson and Scott Sullivan.
The collection is a beautiful portrayal of the past, present and future of Indiana’s agriculture as seen through the eyes of the artists. All paintings were created while in the field and include sights such as bucolic live-stock farms, farmers’ markets, flower producers, and automated dairy operations.
A selection of 40 works is being displayed over the following months as a continuation of an exhibit started in August 2006. The exhibit will continue at Richmond, West Lafayette, and Indianapolis. The art auction will take place Oct. 28 in Indianapolis.
The exhibit will conclude with a book signing and reception from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 27, and an auction from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 28, at Wickliff & Associates Auctioneers Inc., Carmel, Ind. Portions of the proceeds from the auction will benefit the Center for Agricultural Science and Heritage Inc. and the IPAPA.
