An auction of the paintings will follow at 3:30 p.m. in the historic red barn. Artists will also be displaying other works for purchase in the red barn.
Music by Judy Handler and Mark Levesque on guitar and mandolin will be played from 1 to 3 p.m. Parking is available in the parking lot of Valley Falls Park. A shuttle van will be available.
The event is sponsored by the Vernon Parks and Recreation Department and the Vernon Arts Commission.
Valley Falls Farm is a local historic property, and is knows for its hillside vistas.
The 8-acre farm and seven outbuildings were saved when the Friends of Valley Falls purchased the property in 2001. The buildings include a stable and herb gardens, maintained by the Vernon Garden Club.
All proceeds from the event will go toward the preservation and restoration of the farm. For more info call 860- 875-4623, or visit www.friendsofvalleyfalls.org.
