If you've ever been to Chico, California, you know that it's a progressive college town surrounded by agriculture. And one of the best ways this manifests itself--besides amazing art and social events in town--is in the Chico Certified Farmers Market. I have a wealth of photographs because of the weekly markets on Saturday, Thursday, Wednesday, and more. I've captured vegetables, fruits, flowers, baskets, and a variety of people. Additionally, I've eaten really well and fresh in Chico.

Chico's 1078 Gallery is beginning a short exhibit today entitled Lentamente, which means "slowly" in Italian. The exhibit celebrates the North State's seasonal bounty and the slow food movement through local artists' photographic interpretations. You can see the exhibit from 12:30-5:30pm today through Saturday, and there are special evening events listed on their website.

I have the following photo (finished with a 2" white mat, glass, and black metal frame) hanging and ready for sale at the Lentamente exhibit. Half of the proceeds support Chico's 1078 Gallery for the next fiscal year. Stop by and check out my photo and those of other photographers who have captured Chico's natural bounty.
