Art Gallery with Barn

It was a good weekend for art studio tours — we had three to choose from. Two were in West Virginia and one was in the Lovettsville, Virginia area. I decided to skip the Hampshire Highlands Studio Tour because we've done it before and had not done the other two. I always like exploring a new area as long as it's fairly convenient.

Saturday we took the Over the Mountain tour near Charles Town. We've been to Charles Town a number of times and knew that the countryside around it is hilly and scenic. Our first stop was barely in West Virginia, a short drive from Berryville. It turned out to be a community gallery called Craftworks, in a new energy-efficient building located in a park-like setting.

There is an attractive barn on the property.

I was delighted to see a cute mural painted on the side of the barn. It is signed by Mia and Autumn.


  1. Thanks Linda for sharing this great collection this week. How would have expected the mural...what a treat. I hope to see you back again.

  2. It sounds like you had a fun time. That mural is really sweet. :)

  3. Well I think Mia and Autumns mural is very nice ...

    All the best Jan

  4. Sounds like a fun way to spend the day and that mural is really cute.

  5. It is very sweet. Perfect for the gentle landscape of the Shenandoah Valley. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.
