Historic Barns of Ohio Event, Stark County
Join us at Spring Hill Farm for a program celebrating the fusion of Ohio art and history.
Artist and Author Robert Kroeger (Kray-gurr) explores barns across the state, learning their stories and sharing them with others through his essays, events, and books like Historic Barns of Ohio (History Press, Arcadia Publishing). After his travels he heads back to his home in Cincinnati to paint the barns and their landscapes using the impasto technique.
Join us for this event celebrating the restoration of our granary barn (ca. 1905-1910) over the past year and to learn about other historic barns around Stark County and greater Ohio!
The event will begin with a painting demonstration in the barn along with shopping opportunities with local/rustic vendors. The painting demonstration will be followed by a barn talk and an option to go on a historic home tour until 7pm. Books will be available for purchase and signing by the author. A few concessions will also be available. After the painting is complete, it will be available by auction.
Part of the proceeds from this event will benefit Spring Hill Historic Home and Perry History Club
