Art in the Barn takes place this Friday, June 10 through to Sunday the 12th. This will be the 4th year I have participated in this festive art event. This is the 22nd year Essex County Greenbelt has sponsored this exhibit and sale to benefit their organization - a very worthwhile, important nonprofit land trust on the north shore.
From their website:
Essex County Greenbelt Association is a member supported nonprofit land trust that has conserved nearly 14,000 acres of land in Essex County. Greenbelt works with local communities and landowners to acquire and protect ecological areas, farmland and scenic vistas. One of our major goals is the creation of "greenbelts" consisting of river, trail, and other natural corridors, coastal systems and visually intact landscapes
Along with about 150 other artists in a wide range of media we get to show our work for three days to a very receptive audience in a beautiful setting in Essex. Last year the event drew 3500 visitors. And if sales occur we get support and in turn support the Greenbelt. This year I have three framed paintings in watermedia and 10 shrinkwrap works. I was hoping to post the other framed pieces but lost the images somehow in reorganizing the files. Oh well... better yet come to the Cox reservation this weekend and stop at Farnham's next door for a sumptous lobster roll.
