Barnyard Art

Barnyard art is on display at the Ashe County Arts Center until Sept. 5.

The Gallery of the Ashe Arts Center presents Barnyard Antics, with more than 20 artists exhibiting various types of media. The exhibit will be on display through Sept. 5.

Artists were encouraged to create works of art featuring our animal friends. Cows, goats, sheep, chickens and more, artists capture the fun and feisty animals at their best and worst. Paintings, photography, mixed media and more fill the walls at the Ashe Arts Center.
