Barnworks collective reunites in a new venue

  • Jul 23, 2014 at 3:21PM

When the collaborative gallery Barnworks shuttered its doors at the end of 2012, it left a significant hole in the Vashon art scene. For over 30 years the barn situated in the field behind Sharon Munger’s house held biannual art shows, retreats, weddings and parties and became the site for sewing the annual Vashon Allied Arts community quilt. Yet while the venue may be gone, the spirit behind the artist collective remains. The group will hold a reunion show at The Hardware Store Restaurant, opening on Friday, Aug. 1, during the First Friday Gallery Cruise
