Reception: Monday, September 3 from 4pm to 6pm

Event: Friday, August 31 to Monday, September 3, 2018 from 11am to 5pm

Every Labor Day, Yellow Barn instructors and Friends of the Yellow Barn members hold a drawing-only show of works in pencil, pastel, pen and ink, and charcoal.  The exhibit celebrates expressive mark making and line quality in all styles: realism, abstraction, cartooning and doodling. Although the Yellow Barn is known for it’s classes in oil, watercolor, and acrylic painting, we ask our artists to put away their paints and draw. The exhibit recognizes the art and importance of drawing and the fact that exceptional drawing skills lead to exceptional paintings.

This year, Plaza Artist Materials will sponsor two “peoples choice” awards of $250, one for Yellow Barn instructors and one for Friends of the Yellow Barn members. So, come and vote for your favorite! And all works are for sale, so you might take a winner home with you!

The Yellow Barn Studio and Gallery is located in Glen Echo Park, 7300 MacArthur Boulevard, Glen Echo, MD. For more information:
