Farm to Frame 2016: a Juried Photography Exhibition
The fifth annual Farm to Frame juried photography exhibition celebrates the environment and people that make Northern Michigan a farm-to-table culinary paradise. Presented in partnership with Grand Traverse Resort and Spa, this year's exhibition will be displayed atop the Resort at Aerie Restaurant & Lounge through November 30. Edible Grande Traverse is pleased to share these highlights but we encourage you to see the entire exhibit in its setting on the 16th floor overlooking West Bay. Works are available for purchase, with proceeds benefiting the artists and Crooked Tree Art Center's education and arts programs.

2016 JUROR STATEMENT
Our talented photographers have sought out the unique agricultural beauty that exists in our area. They have demonstrated the pleasure that locally produced food brings to us at our dining table every day. And they have captured the personalities of those whose labor and livelihood have contributed to making all of this possible. Choosing the images to present and the award winners was an inspiring experience. All of the contributors deserve our praise for their demonstrated talent.
Local food has a vital role both in connecting our community and bringing daily pleasure to our families. Photographic art can highlight the role of the local food movement in preserving our environment.
As you view these images, I invite you to pause and be drawn into the photograph as if you are physically present.
