    Presenting...Art in the Barn!


    Hello Wheat Ridge area artists! The attached is a Call for Entry from the Wheat Ridge Art League, a one-night only fundraising event in Wheat Ridge, Colorado on June 11, 2022 called Art in the Barn.

    This inaugural event is to establish a scholarship program for graduating high school art students in the Wheat Ridge area wishing to pursue additional art education, and to showcase/make for sale artwork from area artists. The scholarships will be funded through event ticket sales and proceeds from art sales go to the artist. See the attached for all the details.

    We would love to have you enter artwork for this exciting Art in the Barn event. If you decide not to enter your artwork, it would be great to see you at the Barn in support of young artists scholarships, and other artists showing their work. Plus, you will enjoy an evening of live music, light appetizers, wine, beer, and other beverages both in the barn and outside (weather permitting).

    Hope to see you at the Barn!
