Picket Fence Art Show


1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

The 20th Picket Fence Art Show, sponsored by the Richfield Historical Society and the Richfield-Hinckley Art Group, will be held on Sunday, Aug. 14, from 1-5 p.m. in the Johnson Barn located within Richfield Woods Park (4100 Broadview Rd.). This prestigious art event originated with Theo and Ane Marie Kirk who hosted a weekly art group at their home and restaurant, then known as the Danish Smorgasbord. The art group organized and held the original outdoor art show, known as β€œThe Picket Fence Art Show,” where framed artwork hung on a snow fence, back in the mid-1950s and 60s. Admission remains free to the public. Original framed art, ceramics, photography, jewelry and fine crafts will be offered for sale.
