Annual Juried Exhibition
For over two decades artists across several counties and states have been entering our Juried Exhibition each May. All skill levels are encouraged to submit their hangable art in any chosen media. In 2017 over $5000 in cash and prizes were awarded to selected participating artists.
This year marks our 25th Juried Exhibition, featuring nationally known watercolor artist and teacher Ken Hosmer as our guest juror.
Gala opening is May 12, 2018, 6-8 pm. Entry deadline is May 4, 2018.
2018 Art Blitz – September 15 and 16, 11 am – 5 pm
The annual Art Blitz falls on the third weekend of September. This two day immersive fest is an opportunity to pick up a brush or observe art in the making.
Bring the family for the day. Explore all kinds of media including textile art, clay, oil, watercolor, Zentangle, paper crafts, a giant found-item mandala, and much more! Watch artists at work, try some art yourself, and hike our beautiful trails. Popular food vendors offer snacks and lunch, live music is scheduled throughout both days, and there’s plenty for the kids to participate in–including face painting and live puppeteers. Admission is free, tickets are for sale to participate in classes and crafts.
This event highlights the wonderful talent of our young students ages 5 to teen. All Art Barn students, both current and past, are eligible to enter this show. Family and friends are invited to join us for opening night refreshments and acknowledgement of all participants.
