Several years ago, Bruno Loehrer purchased the remains of an old dairy barn on Elm Lake in the town of Greenville near Middletown. As he explains, “Surrounded by wetlands and wildlife, I engaged local talent to renovate and create a new home. Keeping the same footprint as the original barn, we maintained the historical structure. With the use of modern equipment we were able to raise the oak beam structure and all the original beams now support the barn as they did after the first raising over 200 years ago. I have turned it into an art gallery atmosphere where artists, art lovers, collectors, local patrons or for that matter anyone from anywhere can meet, relax, show their work or view what is exhibiting.”
The Barn debut of Art at Elm Lake launches with the opening reception showing three local artists Daniela Cooney, George Centamore and Joan Kehlenbeck on Sept 21 and 22 from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. The artists will be present during the reception, so it is a must see event. The following exhibit on October 19 and 20 will be showcasing Eugen Meier from Zurich, Switzerland who will be present to meet the community. “We extend an open invitation to all and hope you will join us,” says Loeher.
