This Weekend at Links Bridge Vineyards (June 17 & 18)
This weekend we’ll be featuring photos by Kim Keller–you won’t want to miss them! Also, the old bank barn at our Chestnut Hill vineyard site will be a stop on the 16th Annual Barnstormers Tour and Plein Air Paint Out. Here’s some more detailed information:
Photos by Kim Keller (June 17-18)
The exhibit at Links Bridge Vineyards includes works from her “Parade Project”, previously shown at the Abington Art Center near Philadelphia. In this show, she explored the ways that parades and public holiday celebrations continued to attract performers and audiences throughout the pandemic. These images illustrate, by way of the faces of the viewers and the performers, that rather than dropping off in popularity, parades continued to bridge generations during that challenging time. The pictures are full of color, charm, and human interest.
The exhibit also includes a group of wildlife photos that brings you up close and personal with stunning and sometimes comical birds. All will capture both your eye and mind.
For more information about Kim and her work, take a look at her website.
Barnstormers Tour: The Barns of Utica (June 17)
Saturday June 17 is the date of the 16th Annual Barnstormers Tour and Plain Air Paint Out. This event, organized and sponsored by the Frederick County Landmarks Foundation, takes you on a self-guided tour of nine old barns in the Utica area of Frederick County. At each barn, artists will be at work painting the local landscape, and docents will be there to tell you about the building and its history. In the afternoon from 3:30-5:00, the morning’s paintings will be on sale at Brookfield Farm (just up the street from Links Bridge Vineyards), together with delicious barbecue, hand-dipped ice cream, and foot-stomping music by the Gravy Soppers.
This is not strictly speaking a Links Bridge Vineyards event, but we mention it because the old bank barn at our Chestnut Hill vineyard site is a stop on the tour, and because the event is one of many throughout the year that the Landmarks Foundation organizes to raise funds for preserving historic county landmarks and educating the public about county history.

Hope to see you here!
