Big Red Barn Art Show

2018 marks the 21st year of the Big Red Barn Art Show.  It is held in the Red Barn Galleries at Lareau Farm in Waitsfield and will run from August 2 through 26, 2018.  The show is open from noon to 9 pm, Thursday through Sunday each week.

An opening reception is planned for Sunday, August 5th.  All are invited to this free event. Refreshments will be served.

A registration form will be posted on this page in early May.

This non-juried show is restricted to artists living full or part-time in the towns in the Mad River Valley watershed, (north Granville, Warren, Waitsfield, Fayston, Moretown, East Duxbury, Middlesex south of Rte 2.)

All artwork must be original, framed or painted-edge canvas, ready for hanging. That means screw eyes and wire. No flimsy pasted on or sawtooth hangers.  No copies of photographs without written permission of the photographer presented with the entry. No prints of any kind, except those for sale in the Art Stall section of the show.

All artists are required to participate in the supervision of the show during open hours.  Three 3 hour shifts during the four-week show are expected.  Artists who cannot make the required hours will agree to pay a trained docent $12 an hour to replace them. Sign up for shifts will begin online at sign up in early May. An email reminder will be sent to all artists registered at that time – (Note- if you want a time slot of your choice, it’s best to sign up early!)

There is an entry fee, $30 for Valley Arts members, $40 for non-members. A 10% commission will be taken on all sales and 6% state sales tax will be paid by purchasers at the time of sale.
