Star Barn Raising Festival by Julie Riker

I was honored to be commissioned as the onsite painter for last weekend's Star Barn Raising Festival.

  The Star Barn is a significantly historic barn, built in 1860, that sat along rt.283 between Harrisburg and Lancaster.  It has long been a favorite site for painters, photographers, and lovers of nostalgia.  The barn was purchased by a private owner last year and has been moved, along with it's outbuildings, piece by piece, to it's new location in Elizabethtown where it will be preserved as a venue for weddings and events.

I was asked to create 2 paintings, both 24x36, depicting certain actions in the reconstruction.  I kept thinking that the original barn raising may have had a few sketch artists, as not everyone had a camera back then.

The festival was well attended and I was able to talk to many people about my painting.  I was surprised that so many people relate to this barn in a personal way.  

At one point, an Amish teen boy (maybe 13) stood and watched me paint for about a half hour.  He asked a lot of questions about what I was doing and seemed very interested that I was painting just from observation - what I was seeing.  I thought that was a neat moment - art bringing together 2 very different people.

Mountain Maryland by Julie Riker

Last week I painted in Cumberland, MD for the Mountain Maryland plein air event. It was my first time visiting this area.  I loved the steep hilly town and the rural outlying areas.  Much of this rural area is economically depressed which is sad to see, but makes for great painting subjects.  I had the opportunity to paint in an abandoned silk mill in Lanaconing which closed in 1957 and was left intact.

 "Rose Hill"
14x18

"1937 McCormick Deering"
9x12

"Narrows Bridge"
14x18

"Lonaconing Silk Mill"
12x16

"Ottaviani's"
9x12
