A popular, annual art show that caps off the Mad River Valley’s summer art season, Green Mountain Cultural Center’s Art in the Round Barn is a tasteful and worthy collection of local and regional artworks including oil, pastel, and watercolor paintings, various types of sculpture, and an assortment of mixed media pieces, including fiber, metal, wood, and found object.
A juried art show drawing hundreds of applicants, Art in the Round Barn kicks off Sunday, September 20th, from 4pm to 7pm, with the highly anticipated “Meet the Artists” wine and food reception. Have an opportunity to meet these talented artists, see their art before it sells, and enjoy some delicious food and drink.
Now celebrating its 25th year, the Green Mountain Cultural Center’s Art in the Round Barn show is held annually in the lower level of the historic Joslin Round Barn, located in Waitsfield, VT. A historical centerpiece to the Mad River Valley’s farming heritage, Joslin Round Barn (also known as Joslyn Round Barn) is the only survivor of five “round” barns that once stood in Waitsfield, as well as only one of 15 left in Vermont.
Built in 1910, the 12-sided, polygonal structure was actively used to house Guernsey cows until 1969. The barn fell out of use and into disrepair for nearly two decades before being saved by a major, two-year long restoration project, begun by the owners in 1988. Now playing home to the Green Mountain Cultural Center, the historic barn’s distinctive outlines serve to enrich the ambiance of exhibitions held there, making attending a pleasure in itself.
