"Evening Barn" from the series Distilled Life (2010).

The Painted Farm, an exhibition by Fine Arts alumnus James Young (CCAD 1986), will open at Kussmaul Gallery in Granville, Ohio on April 29 from 6–8 p.m.

“My allegiance to barns began in childhood, and my deep appreciation for them was furthered later, when I worked as a day laborer,” Young writes on his website. “The barns I seek are majestic and have persevered against great odds to live to a venerable age. Concern for my aging muse increases with each year, and I wonder at what point my audience will fail to recognize my offering.”

The show includes 23 of Young’s new oil paintings of central Ohio farms and is open through May 28. Kussmaul Gallery is open Monday through Saturday 10 a.m.–5:30 p.m. and Sunday from 12–4 p.m. Find out more on their website.
