Range, Furrow, and Grove: Images of Florida Agriculture: on the Art Wall for April

Posted on: Apr 6, 2012 @ 9:29:00 am

UCF Dining Sustainability is sponsoring the UCF Library exhibit honoring April’s Earth Month. This exhibit, designed to develop an art experience that reflects our food system, is on the Art Wall inside the John C. Hitt Library on the Main Campus until Monday, April 30, 2012.

Range, Furrow, and Grove: Images of Florida Agriculture, is a collaborative effort between the University of Florida (UF) Office of Sustainability, the UF College of Fine Arts School of Art & Art History, the UF/IFAS Center for Public Issues Education in Agriculture and Natural Resources (PIE Center), Florida photographer Carlton Ward, Jr., and University of Montevallo faculty member and exhibit curator Dr. Kelly Wacker.

“In this exhibition, we blend historical photographs with contemporary images of Florida ranching and agriculture to reveal past and present methods and approaches of representing the management of Florida's natural environment,” UF School of Art & Art History professor Katerie Gladdys said. Gladdys facilitated the artistic direction for the exhibit.

The exhibit's installation creates a horizon line reflecting the notion of land in general and the relatively flat Florida landscape in particular, contains color photos shot by photographer Carlton Ward, Jr. and black and white photos from the Agriculture Experiment Station Collection housed at the Florida State Archives.

“We are very excited and incredibly honored to have Range, Furrow, and Grove on loan, and to be exhibited as part of Earth Month in the UCF Library. We hope it inspires viewers to research the history of Florida agriculture, and learn more about sustainable food systems,” said Eden Wetherell, Sustainability Coordinator, for UCF Dining Services.
