Celebrating Adams County's Historic Barns!

The show will run June 7, 8 and 9. 




Many of the area's most noted artists will be showing their work in HGAC’s 16th Annual BarnArt Show and Sale. Proceeds from this popular event will benefit the Barn Preservation Project and Grant Program sponsored by HGAC (The Preservation Society of Historic Gettysburg - Adams County).


The exhibit in 2024 will be held at the G.A.R. Hall at 53 East Middle St. in historic downtown Gettysburg from Friday, June 7 until Sunday June 9. All the artworks accepted into this unique exhibit must include a representation of a barn or a detail of a barn.


The Opening Night Reception on Friday, June 7 is free and open to the public from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m. The exhibit will then be open to the public on Saturday, June 9, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and on Sunday, June 10, from noon until 4 p.m.


Winners of awards will be announced during the Friday night reception at 7:30 p.m. Two cash prizes of $1,000 will be awarded: one for Best of Show in Fine Art, and one for Best of Show in Photography. Opening Night attendees will again cast their votes for the ever-popular "People's Choice Award." The "Artists' Choice Award" will be given to the artwork voted best by participating artists.


Last year's show featured a display of barn photographs taken by Gettysburg Times photographer, Darryl Wheeler. The collection of Wheeler's images was titled, "Gone, But Not Forgotten," and highlighted historic barns that once graced Adams County's rural landscape.


If you like barns and if you like art, then this event is for you! Come see the show that some say is the "largest collection of barn art under one roof in the known universe."
