Essex County Greenbelt’s Art in the Barn For 30 years, Art in the Barn was held at Greenbelt’s Cox Reservation in Essex. This year, due to public health concerns, the Art in the Barn Exhibit and Sale will be held online for 10 days from Monday, June 8 through Wednesday, June 17.
An online silent auction this year featuring work from renowned artists George Sherwood, Dorothy Monnelly, Ann Jones and Kris Francis will run from 10 a.m. Friday, June 12 through 3 p.m. Sunday, June 14.
The event is recognized as one of the North Shore’s premier showcases and sales featuring work from more than 100 of the most-talented artists in the region. Artwork in this juried show includes fine art paintings, sculpture, jewelry, pottery, woodworking and photography. Participating artists generously donate 50 percent (often more) of their proceeds to Greenbelt. Every purchase supports Greenbelt's land conservation work.
