When I moved into this 1700’s farmhouse decades ago, I dreamed of eventually using the barn as a gathering place to come for people to come and be creative together. Today, the barn proves versatile, housing team building events, kids art camps and workshop days, scout get-togethers, birthday parties and adult Paint and sip nights, the barn provides a womb of inspiration.
The interior first floor of the barn is ready with easels and canvases and a table full of libations. The barn offers an atmosphere to get away from it all and for anyone to accomplish something they never thought they could. The excitement and laughter can be heard through the barn walls during painting parties where inhibitions are loosened and creativity flows, revealing the artist in all of us.
Now, I realized there is a need for an artist collective. I am currently working on hosting a group where local working artists can come and use the space as a studio or to share their ideas and be inspired by others.
