11th Annual Art Demonstration Day
Date: Saturday, April 8, 11 am to 4 pm

Art demonstration days were developed to showcase the creative processes of regional people each year on a different theme. At the Barn we celebrate creativity and hope that visitors will be inspired to learn more by taking a class in a new medium, or go home and try a new idea, or just appreciate what others do to create in that medium. Participants have their creations for sale at these events.

Re-Create the Ordinary: Delight in the Extraordinary Result!
Join fellow creative artists and ignite your imagination as you see everyday objects in quirky, crazy, simple and fun ways...who knows what wonders you can see in that old rolling pin, a broken wooden chair, or a wooden box? Can that teacup you love with the missing handle have new life?

Both our resident artists and visiting artists will be demonstrating how they bring found objects to new life as art.

Art demonstrations in our new Loafing Shed addition:
Carrie Vielle - Carrie is one of our resident artists who creates fine art collage.  She fabricates unique, collage-based figural drawings using a variety of found objects, vintage fabrics and antique book pages.

Students from Alpha Rho Chi, an academic fraternity at WSU, are demonstrating and selling upcycled, biodegradable garden planters with veggies and flowers. 

Debi Robinson-Smith works in many media, and is involved with the Clay Studio at the Barn. She also uses discards and found objects to create assemblage art. She will be displaying some of her assemblages, and will demonstrate her creative process.

Kassie Smith is a resident artist operating our clay studio.  She will be creating small purses and jewelry using repurposed leather and fur garments, fabric and found materials such as feathers and bones. She will also be embellishing handmade pottery with found organic materials.

Katherine Clancy has had a studio in the Barn since it opened. Kat makes art post cards by reusing greeting cards, ephemera and found papers, magazine words and pictures and her own drawing/painting. Art post cards not only bring joy to the recipient, but also to all the postal workers along the way.

Jean Crawford Evans - "I like to take apart computers and turn them into other things to keep as much out of the landfill as possible.  The bits and pieces are wonderful little bits of art themselves."  Jean will be making unique jewelry that incorporates computer parts.

Shelly Gilmore - "I have a passion for junk metal and really enjoy creating something treasured out of someone else's junk." Shelly makes whimsical sculptures, some larger than life, and furniture.

Resident artists who will be working in their studios re-purposing found materials:
Tracy Randall - She will be making paper flowers from the pages of a discarded book.  Some flowers may incorporate decorator fabric samples.

Alison Oman is our resident artist who weaves with beads.  Many found objects are incorporated in her one-of-a-kind pieces.

Becky Thorgaard's studio is the Milk House - the little building between the Barn and the road.  She will be creating with reeds, grasses, shells, stones and hand-made paper, so be sure to stop in.

Repurposed materials turned into art by Uniontown artist Jennifer Holland are on loan for the day.  She embellishes dress forms on a theme.  Come see Frida Kahlo, Rosa Bonheur and Georgia O’Keefe.
