Art Fx is a year-long series on Huntsville Doppler featuring Huntsville-area visual artists.
“Browns Barn” is a 14″ x 12″ acrylic on board which captures a piece of Huntsville history that no longer exists.
Artist Ken Biggs used to pass the barn, which was located on West Browns Road, on his way home from town.
“This day the sun just caught it in a way that made me stop and take a picture,” he says. “I painted it in my studio over the next few days only to find out that it was torn down shortly thereafter (August 2020). A new home is presently being built on the site. So, this painting is now a true historic capture of Huntsville’s past.”
“Browns Barn” is available for $225, framed.
About the artist:
Ken Biggs has been painting seriously since he retired a few years ago but has loved cottaging, camping, and tripping in Muskoka and Algonquin Park all his life.
“My parents built a cottage on Lake of Bays in 1956 and I have now been living here in Huntsville since 1985. I love ‘plein air’ painting with my fellow artists but usually finish things up in my studio at home,” he notes.
Ken has shown his works at Partners Hall in Huntsville, the Baysville Walkabout, Cedar Creek, and also with the Muskoka Palette Packers, and presently has hangings at the Moose Cafe, Slice of Muskoka, and the Two Horse Gallery.
