Thought You Couldn’t Afford An Original Work of Art?

aitb_2770aART IN THE BARN is your chance to get an original work of art directly from the artist! At the 5th annual Art in the Barn you can meet over 50 artists from the Rideau Lakes Artists’ Association displaying an eclectic mix of original artwork, including watercolour, acrylic, oil, mixed media and batik paintings, and artisans showing pottery, quilting, stained glass and bird carvings. This exciting show will be held at the Lombardy Agricultural Society Fairgrounds located 4 miles south of Smiths Falls on Highway 15 at Kelly’s Road on Friday, July 10th from 6:00 pm. to 8:00 pm. and on Saturday and Sunday, July 11th & 12th, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

After last year’s smashing success, Art in the Barn is vamping things up. Due to the popularity of the show from both the artists and visitors, exhibitors will be set up in the Barn as usual and also in the Main Hall of the Fairgrounds providing two fun and relaxed atmospheres to meet with the artists and talk to them about their wide diversity of original artwork. Visitors will also have the opportunity to participate in the first People’s Choice Award. “The Art in the Barn Show offers visitors an opportunity to take home something unique from their summer travels that they would not find in a store,” said Christine Martin, Chair of the 2015 show.”

Food vendors and a picnic area will also be available for visitors’ comfort.

This unique venue has ample free parking and shelter. Admission is free and a percent of all sales, together with any contributions to our “Donation Jar”, will be donated to the Perth/Smiths Falls Hospitals. VISA, Mastercard, cash or cheques are accepted. For more information about this and other shows of the Rideau Lakes Artists’ Association please visit our website at or visit us on Facebook.
