MOFGA unveiled the 2024 Common Ground Country Fair artwork earlier today at the Maine Agricultural Trades Show in Augusta. The artwork for the fair’s promotional materials and iconic T-shirts is selected from contest submissions each year and the winning design is highly anticipated. This year’s artwork by Maya Kuvaja is titled “Owl with Apples.” This artwork aligns with MOFGA’s mission and spotlights how organic orchards serve as important habitat for wildlife, including birds of prey.
“I love to paint these beautiful creatures, symbols of wisdom, natural allies of farmers. This handsome fellow seemed like a perfect fit in an apple tree, a blend of wild nature and one of my favorite Maine crops!” says Maya Kuvaja, the artist.
Planning is underway for the 2024 Common Ground Country Fair, which takes place on September 20, 21 and 22 in Unity, Maine. Vendor applications are now being accepted for many areas of the fair. Vendors and exhibitors interested in learning more about how they can participate in the event this year can learn more at: mofga.org/the-fair.
