The weather co-operated just enough on the August 8/9 weekend, as over 175 guests turned out for the second annual open house RETURN on the art farm. With everything from sculpture to mask performance to spanish guitar to live-pressed poetry,
RETURN had something for audiences of all ages through-out the farm and surrounding forest.

With record-smashing numbers and over 35 new members signing up, the art farm was encouraged by the support and excitement generated by all the people who participated and attended. Special thanks go out to all our sponsors, neighbors, volunteers, staff and, of course, artists who made the weekend an event we'll be "returning" to for years to come.
