Artists – painters, sculptors, potters, photographers, jewelry makers and more – are invited to submit their work to be considered for Greenbelt’s 31st annual “Art in the Barn” exhibition and sale. 

“Art in the Barn” is a juried show. To be considered, artists must submit five digital images and their jury form by April 5, 2020. Please visit for instructions and forms. Artists who have not exhibited before are chosen based on their work as represented by submitted materials, and as space permits.

Painters may offer three framed works for sale, depending on size. Pottery, ceramics, jewelry, etc. are displayed on 5-feet by 30-inch tables. Large sculptures are displayed on the beautiful grounds outside.

The show has a well-earned reputation as one of the best art exhibits on the North Shore, attracting several thousand visitors each year. It is a fundraiser to support Greenbelt’s land conservation work. Greenbelt and the artist each receive 50 percent of the sale price.

The exhibit takes place each year at Greenbelt’s Cox Reservation and Headquarters in Essex. This year, the show will run for 2 days: Friday, June 12th and Saturday, June 13th. Complete application information can be found at
