#VerandART Opening Reception for Photographer Rick Barber at Clay Hill Farm
To honor Ogunquit’s long-standing history as an artists’ colony and showcase the local artists in the community today, Clay Hill Farm- together with TaleSpinStudio in Ogunquit, launched the #VerandArt Project in the spring of 2018. The unique outreach program features a new local artist’s collection in the Veranda Room at Clay Hill Farm every 6-8 weeks for the public to view and enjoy. The next featured artist is local photographer Rick Barber, with a public artist meet and greet Reception scheduled for Wednesday, August 19th from 3-5 pm at Clay Hill Farm.
After purchasing Moon Over Maine Bed & Breakfast in 2011, Rick Barber and his husband Mark moved to Ogunquit and settled in as residents on the picturesque coast of Maine. What began as a morning walk on the beach, quickly became a daily sunrise photo post on Facebook, and from there Barber’s photography took off. With a deep passion for Ogunquit expressed through his photos, and a steadfast commitment to community through volunteerism, Barber has become much more than a casual amateur photographer. Through the power of social media, Barber’s powerful images of coastal beauty- with a sunrise specialty, have transcended small town love to become iconic messages of new-day hope and peace for all. “Capturing these moments is like finding moments of grace and serenity”, said Barber, “An opportunity to find a sense of peace in a chaotic world. “
Barber’s “Mornings in Maine” collection will be displayed in the Veranda Room at Clay Hill Farm through mid to late October, with the opening scheduled for Wednesday, August 19th from 3-5 pm. In accordance with state safety protocols, masks are required for the indoor gallery during the opening. Complimentary hors d’oeuvres will be provided and all are welcome. The #VerandArt Project is an artistic collaboration between Clay Hill Farm and TaleSpinStudio in Ogunquit, bringing the love of art and food into experiential harmony. More information on the artist and the mission for the #VerandArt Project is available on Clay Hill Farm’s website: www.clayhillfarm.com
