About the Exhibit
OAC members, inspired by the United Nations 2021 International Year of Fruits and Vegetables, present artwork that raises awareness of the UN’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. From vibrant to somber, representational to abstract, they use a variety of media to explore themes related to nutrition, farming, food systems, lack and abundance, and seeds, change, and hope. Come and see how artists help us make connections between everyday foodstuffs and one of the essential concerns of our times.

At the Hungers/Harvests reception on September 17th, join the Ossining Arts Council members who were inspired by the UN 2021 International Year of Fruits and Vegetables. During the reception, we will be collecting funds to donate to the Ossining Food Pantry, which re-starts distribution of foods such as grains, fruit, vegetables, proteins and pantry staples to clients. Since the beginning of the pandemic, the Ossining Food Pantry saw their client base triple from 400 households to well over 1,000 households. The need is great! Be inspired! Join us and support distribution of fruits and vegetables in our community!
