ABOUT THE ART SHOWs
This annual exhibition had its start in the Warren Town Hall but moved to the Big Red Barn at Lareau Farm Inn when the town hall was no longer available. Each August the classic Vermont barn is converted to a gallery, filled with paintings and sculpture and plays host to well over 3,000 visitors. The show has always been one of the ‘stars’ of the Vermont Festival of the Arts and continues to grow under the tutelage of Dotty Kyle, Ellen Crafton and Karen Ware.
A new ‘star’ arrives on the horizon this coming July for the second annual, when the Green Mountain Watercolor Exhibition moves into the Big Red Barn for a month’s tenure. The Exhibition had its origins in March of 2012 when seven watercolor artists held a small showing of paintings at the Festival Gallery In Waitsfield. Now the show is well on its way to becoming a major, national exhibition with 75 outstanding watercolor paintings. 42 watercolor artists, many nationally recognized, are participating and competing for both monetary and merchandise awards. Ask about the Colorful Palette Dinner – be invited to a 4 course meal and gallery opening fundraiser.
