I’m excited to announce in one month I’ll be joining 175 other artists at this September’s 42nd Annual Art in the Barn Juried Art Festival! It’s a weekend-long affair on a charming rural piece of land belonging to Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital in Barrington, Illinois. It makes a fun show in a beautiful setting.
Today I browsed the listing of this year’s artists, planning who I’d like to visit when I can slip away from my own booth for a minute. (For instance! I’m a sucker for a ceramic coffee mug that settles its weight just right when I slip my fingers around the handle.)

If you are local, please come out! You’ll find works in oil, watercolor, pastel, drawing, acrylics, fiber, glass, photography, digital media, jewelry, printmaking, ceramics, sculpture, scratchboard, wood, and mixed media. There will be food, music, entertainment and, to make it fun for the entire family, a children’s art corner, art gallery, and petting zoo (it’s not called Art in the Barn for nothing!).
And you’ll find me at Tent #21 (click here for map) with several new big blankets, baby blankets, and some Christmas stockings and mittens for the coming season.
Finally, here is a sneak peek at the laaast blanket I’m getting ready for the festival. I’ll put this one up on the blog very soon!
Would love to see you in Barrington in a month ;)
