   The 26th Annual Art About Agriculture: The Nick of Time traveling tour is on exhibit at Art Adventure Gallery through May 30.
   Sponsored by Oregon State University's College of Agricultural Science and the OSU Foundation, the show features 53 works by 41 artists from Oregon and Washington. The artists' pieces are from many fine art media including acrylic, oil, watercolor, fiber, fused glass, wood engraving, linocut, wood block, etching, and photography.
   "Many artists devoted their efforts to observing and recording the nature of time as it relates to the landscape -- primarily the Pacific Northwest landscape -- during the height of harvest season," said Shelley Curtis, curator of the annual exhibit.
   Beginning in Corvallis, the show is traveling to Madras, Baker City, and Roseburg.
