Barns of Page County.  Katrina Ann’s solo show was born from driving back roads, jumping cattle gates, and befriending neighbors.  Exploring farms, she realized barns are treasure chests for painters, creating endless possibilities with their various textures, colors, and designs. Says Katrina, “I love building up the oil paints to capture textures in a field of harvested corn or the peeling paint on a barn door.  These barns are a part of a simpler way of life. They tell the story of hardworking farmers connected to the land. My paintings aim to reconnect people with the land. I can often be found exploring the Shenandoah Valley, gathering inspiration. Art is constantly developing in my mind and taking over my senses. I open the front door, explore the land, and drift into an imaginative state.”  Show runs through Sept. 23 on Fri.-Sun. from 10 am – 5 pm www.katrinaannart.com
Rappahannock Cellars – 14437 Hume Rd., Huntly, VA 22640
