Paint the farm delicious

On Saturday, October 1 paintings of local farm animals will meet local foods to benefit local farms. Local painter Nancy Bass, whose unique images of farm animals have been displayed across the country, will be holding a special preview of her exhibit "Living Local: 13 Paintings 13 Farms" at Anchorage Farm in Charlottesville. They will also be available for purchase by way of a silent auction.

Oh, and the food part? Various cheeses and meats from the farms featured in the painting will be paired with local wines and beers.
