May 18, 2009

Celebrating a new season of wonderful local art and creative activities, The Barn Gallery enters its 50th year with a dynamic array of exhibitions. The opening exhibition runs from May 20th through June 20th, with a gala reception on Saturday, May 23rd from 5 to 8 pm. All are invited to view the new exhibitions and meet with the artists.
The Barn Gallery was built by the Barn Gallery Associates in co-operation with the Ogunquit Art Association in 1958 to provide exhibition space for the artists of the Ogunquit Art Association and a center for cultural activities. Today, it is a vital part of the lively cultural life of Ogunquit and the surrounding area.
The Ogunquit Arts Collaborative was founded in 1997 to administer the Barn Gallery and to present exhibitions by local professional artists. It also hosts and co-sponsors chamber music concerts, an art film series and Poets in Person in conjunction with the Ogunquit Performing Arts. The efforts and support of the artists make the Barn Gallery a truly exceptional place to experience the finest art of the southern seacoast area.

Exercise Room

faofitnessAs we all know, the excercise room is a small area.  In the goal to make it look bigger, we decided to split the mirror in half.  We are also going to get some stationary bikes and situate them against the new half wall.  I think it we’ll get much more use of out that previous wasted space.

They put themselves on the line to get a job on the line. When they’re done, so is the audition. And only eight will remain….
