New Milford nonprofit, artist sponsoring Barn Quilt Hunt

NEW MILFORD — Gallery 25 and Creative Arts Studio and Lorraine Ryan are sponsoring “The Barn Quilt Hunt,” a summer photo scavenger hunt to find the 19 quilts painted on barns in New Milford. Ten of Ryan’s paintings of the area barns are hanging in Gallery 25 in the historic Railroad Station at 11 Railroad St.

The public is invited to come in and see the paintings and pick up a map of the Barn Quilt Trail. Gallery hours are Friday from 4 to 7 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The person who locates and photographs the most Barn Quilts this summer will be eligible to win a favorite framed print from the 10 Barn Quilt Paintings on exhibit in Gallery 25.

The photos can be printed and brought to the gallery or viewed digitally on one’s phone or other device by a gallery member during business hours. Photos must be presented to the gallery no later than Sunday, Sept. 12. The winner will be announced on Sept. 18 and may choose a favorite painting to have a print made.
