Thanks for Visiting Farmstead Arts!
A grand time was had by all at The Duck Race and Art Festival on June 8. Visit the Duck Race page for photos and a list of winners.
Last chance to see the incredible art by the Matheny Art Access artists of Basking Ridge is this Sunday, June 23, with gallery hours from 1- 3 PM. Art is for sale, or you can take home a wonderful selection of notecards with their art for only $10. Quantities are limited – and there’s a free surprise gift for the first 15 people who come by on Sunday! Hope to see you there.
The Farmstead Arts Play Reading Group is off to a great start. The group is open to the public. Come by the Farm House the first Monday of each month at 7 PM to watch – it’s free and fun. If you’d like to play a part, contact Artistic Director Bill Ward. Up next “The Importance of being Earnest” on July 1st.
We had a visit from a very special guest – John Martin, a direct descendant of Col. Ephraim Martin who lived in the Farmstead during the Revolutionary War. John shared some of his family’s history with us which we will use to update the History page. Here’s a photo of John Martin in the Martin Room at the Farmstead:
Skylands Magazine has a wonderful article on the Farmstead’s transformation from a working farm to Farmstead Arts. Check out the story in the current issue of Skylands Magazine.
