Fort Morgan, CO. 02/18/14.  The Center for Arts and Community Enrichment (CACE) at MorganImage: The woven hat pictured, by exhibiting CACE artist Jacque Hart, has been selected to represent Colorado in the upcoming National AgrAbility Project Conference. Community College (MCC) is proud to announce that artwork by exhibiting artist, Jacque Hart, has been selected by Colorado AgrAbility and Goodwill Industries of Denver to represent Colorado in the upcoming National AgrAbility Project Conference to be held in Lexington Kentucky next month. 

“Each state that attends the conference is asked to bring an auction item that is representative of their state or program,” explains Candiss Leathers, Colorado AgrAbility program manager. “The money raised from these donations provides funding for farmers and ranchers who may need financial help to attend the conferences.”

The Colorado AgrAbility Project is a collaboration between Colorado State University Extension and Goodwill Industries of Denver to provide disability workshops, on-site evaluations, resource information, equipment modification and assistive technology. Project funding is provided by the U.S. Department of Agriculture National Institute of Food and Agriculture.

The vision of AgrAbility is to enable a lifestyle of high quality for farmers, ranchers, and other agricultural workers with disabilities, so that they, their families, and their communities continue to succeed in rural America.

“Jacque’s fiber arts are a superb representation for Colorado,” notes CACE Visual Arts Coordinator Rachel Kellum. “The wool used in Jacque’s work comes from her own flock. She then spins, treats, colors, and hand weaves each piece. The hat selected is not only warm and beautiful, but represents the agricultural cycle of the artist.”

Last year Celestial Seasonings represented Colorado.

Jacque Hart’s “Catenary” exhibit is open on Fridays from 4 to 6 p.m. at the CACE Gallery of Fine Art (300 Main Street, Fort Morgan) until March 7.
