Make Art at the Museum
Rokeby was a prosperous Merino sheep farm in the early nineteenth century, and the traces of its agricultural past mark the landscape. Today walking trails wind through pastures where sheep and dairy cattle grazed and orchards where apples and pears grew. A neighborhood farmer hays fields. Nine historic outbuildings display a selection of tools and equipment that once powered the farm. Barn foundations, wells, stone walls, and a sheep dip all remain as reminders of Rokeby’s agricultural past. Rokeby’s 90 acres offer a number of opportunities for en plein air painting, drawing, and photography. Beginning May 19, 2019, artists are invited to visit and make art at the museum.
Share Your Art
Once your art is completed and documented, email an image of the artwork where it will be added to your Vermont Art Guide Artist Database profile and it may be shared on Rokeby’s contemporary art blog and through social media.
