Frederick County Landmarks Foundation will present the 8th Annual Barnstormer's Tour and Plein Air Paint-Out on Saturday, June 14, 2014. This popular annual self-guided tour of Frederick County barns calls attention to these beautiful old structures and their importance to our agricultural heritage. The 2014 tour will feature eight farms and a historic grist mill in beautiful Middletown Valley, west of Frederick. The farms are only open to visitors on the day of the tour. Trained docents will greet visitors at each barn. This year many of the barns will have extra educational displays such as blacksmithing and antique farm tools. The event has two components, a barn tour and an art show. During the tour you may watch artists paint at the barns. Later, from 5-7 pm a juried art exhibit and reception will feature the beautiful new plein air paintings. All the art created will be offered for sale during the evening event. Starting about May 25, tickets will be sold at the Frederick Visitors Center, 800-999-3613, and at Schifferstadt Architectural Museum on Rosement Ave. (please call in advance 301-668-6088). On the day of the tour beginning at 10 am, ticket/guide books will be sold at each farm on the tour and tour headquarters at Fox Haven Farm and Learning Center, 3630 Poffenberger Rd., Jefferson, MD. Tickets (guide books with map) are $15 per adult. Children 16 and under are free. For more information, call Frederick County Landmarks Foundation 301-663-3885, or go to http://www.frederickcountylandmarksfoundation.org.
