About the Exhibition
Every Labor Day at the Yellow Barn our instructors, students, and members celebrate drawing. While the Yellow Barn is known for its classes in oil, watercolor, and acrylic painting; we understand the importance of drawing and how exceptional drawing skills lead to exceptional paintings. This 9th annual exhibition celebrates pencil, pastel, pen and ink, charcoal, and any medium used to make a line. We’re celebrating expressive mark making, line quality, realism, and abstraction. We’re celebrating cartooning, sketching, doodling, and realistic rendering. It’s the one show that every year we kindly ask our artists to save their paint for another day.
