Fundraiser for OCHS Scholarship Fund


WHEN: Friday, June 2 from 4:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

WHERE: The Arts Garage

In early 2000s while staying in a rural bed and breakfast in Licking County, Ohio, a lonely deteriorating barn, “Granville Gray,” called out to Bob Kroeger. With roof sagging, boards missing, corners slightly tilted, and in obvious disrepair, it captivated his eye. Suddenly a voice whispered, “Paint it and write about it.” Paint and write he did! His first book, Historic Barns of Ohio, tells a barn story from each of Ohio’s 88 counties and features the painting for that specific county. His second book, Round Barns of America, expands that passion across America showcasing the stories and paintings of 75 round barns.

Please join us at Port Clinton’s The Arts Garage (TAG) for a painting demonstration and barn stories talk. For sale will be his two books: Historic Barns of Ohio at $25 and Round Barns of America at $35 (cash/check only).

Doors open at 4:00 p.m., barn stories talk at 6:00 p.m., and book sales/signing at 7:00 p.m.

Free and open to the public. Donations encouraged.

Proceeds benefit the Ottawa County Historical Society Scholarship Fund.
