The special Barn Weekend Celebration begins on Saturday the 23rd with a free reception and exhibition in the Society’s own Morey-Devereaux Barn. A collection of barn photographs taken by members of the Columbia County Photo Club will be on display. Visitors will also be able to read writings about barns by local children who attended a writing workshop sponsored by AHS in July.
The exhibit will be open again on Sunday at 1 pm. A brief membership meeting begins at 2pm, followed by our featured speaker, Cynthia Falk, author of Barns of New York: Rural Architecture of the Empire State. The talk will be illustrated by a PowerPoint presentation of Ms. Falk’s collected photographic images. The features of the Society’s historic barn will provide direct visual reference points. Free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
Live music from High Country, an old time group from the Finger Lakes, will enhance the festivity of both days.
