BARN GENES: Art in the Barn #2

The third ART IN THE BARN event was hosted by Leah Schroeder and Elise Hofer Derstine at Red Tail Farm last weekend. More artists than even including poets and musicians filled the barn with warm light in the midst of fierce winds. I was pleased to sell two STORY BARN prints, mounted on “found” barn wood. Don’t miss this event next year! Check it out here below and at

BARN GENES: the innate meeting place of creatures and Creat-ivity

(said in one breath) and dedicated to Elise Hofer Derstine and her poem, “BARN JEANS”
