Our Artists

Starting with 10 artists in 2010, The Arts Barn now represents over 100 artists who live and work in Pennsylvania. Their art includes diverse work in a variety of arts and craft media, including: hand crafted leather (journals, checkbooks, ledgers, and purses), photography, wildlife art, quilting, oil, acrylic, watercolor painting and pencil drawings, chainsaw carvings (some as tall as 12 feet), forged iron work (including chandeliers, candelabras, utensils, hooks and holders) , crochet and knit work, hand painted silk, baskets made with both wood and reed, jewelry, hand painted rock art, handcrafted wooden utensils, metal sculptures, hand painted furniture, pottery, hand made soap, solar chimes, assorted handmade holiday ornaments, soy candles, hand turned pens, and fused glass pieces.

We are always looking for new and unique art work from Pennsylvania artists to showcase in our art gallery. We maintain the high quality of art in the gallery by having all new artists reviewed and approved by a committee before their work is accepted.
