Barns are at the very essence of rural living and it’s rolling landscape. Wallowa has a number of barns throughout the county that are historical, beautiful and add to some of the most breathtaking views in the country. The Josephy Center is honored to present “Barns in the Rural Landscape” exhibit opening Friday, October 9 at 7 p.m. The exhibit commemorates and celebrates the barn in the rural landscape. In the exhibit, viewers will have the ability to see the barns in different seasons, compare the different styles and invite people to go out and photograph or paint them on their own.
Executive Director Cheryl Coughlan commented on the exhibit. “The ‘Barn’ exhibit is part of our annual ‘Art and Agriculture’ series, we strive to bring the highest quality of artwork to the community with local interest in mind.” Many local artists and art collectors will be presenting their works: Mike Koloski, Marilyn Goebel, Sam Collett, Dennis Reinke, Jan Holt, Larry Nicholson, Kendrick Moholt, Rob Kemp, Janie Tippett, and more.
The opening reception will feature libations, refreshments and local music. The exhibit will run from October 9 to November 11. The Josephy Center’s hours are Monday through Saturday from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. Many of the pieces on exhibit are for sale.
