FRESH is a six-week exhibition, with accompanying workshops and presentations, hosted by the Rocky Neck Art Colony and Backyard Growers  

This is an exciting collaboration by two inspiring non-profits—Backyard Growers, which encourages an active relationship with food and the earth, and Rocky Neck Art Colony, which encourages and promotes excellence in the arts.

In this exhibition, artists from all over New England will present works that reflect on the theme FRESH, exploring the ways in which food connects us to the earth, nourishes us, and ties us to warmth, family, friends, and memories. Join us in celebrating the new life that emerges as we leave the dark of winter for the optimism of spring! Contemporary, experimental and traditional art in all media will be on view.
