Betty LaDuke Celebrates The Harvest(ers)

Betty LaDuke's artwork looks like it could have come from somewhere in Africa or Latin America.  Which is no surprise, when you look at the extremely long list of places LaDuke has traveled, including Africa and Latin America.

She has a knack for taking the ordinary and cranking up the color, celebrating people and places and actions that humans have performed for eons. 

She's recently released a book showing her work celebrating farm and orchard workers.  Her royalties from book sales will go to a fund she started for education for farmworkers' children.Betty LaDuke lives in the Ashland area and joins us in the studio.
