The Red Barn will be turned into a gallery on Friday and Saturday, June 24 and 25 for an art show, sale and auction. Starting at 5 p.m. on Friday evening, join us for a wine and hors d’oeuvres reception. Many of the artists will be demonstrating their work. Stop by, enjoy a glass of wine, chat with the artists and bid on some fabulous art in the Silent Auction.
Imagination into Art continues on Saturday at 9 a.m. until noon at the Red Barn and Wilmot Farmers Market on the Town Green.
Here are just a few of the artists you will meet on Friday and Saturday:
Sue Finney, painter
Painting with watercolors opens up many exciting possibilities for me, and I continue to experiment. I am attracted to light, color and composition. I usually begin painting from my photos, sketches, or still life compositions. Letting my brush work loosely allows for the creation of bolder images with greater abstractions, which is satisfying.
Rette Solomon, photographer
I have enjoyed taking photos since I was a young child. I like capturing the beauty of nature and animals, particularly horses. This year I received two Gold Key Awards, was selected for the Newport Juried Regional Show, and have a photograph in the New Hampshire 4H State competition. I am currently a rising sophomore at Mount Royal Academy.

My mother taught me to sew, knit and crochet as a young girl. I’ve always enjoyed the process, from purchasing materials to completing the project. Making quilts is relaxing and uplifting for me. Quilts, like so much art, are both practical and spiritual.
“The creative flow goes on all the time. You learn that no matter where you are or what the problem is, the first step to the solution is always within reach. If you don’t have the answer yourself, ask around. Somebody near you will come up with ideas to get you started, and you can take it from there.” Harold Klemp from The Golden Heart
