The Barnstormers Theatre presents an exhibit of Barnstormers Marquee Posters by various local artists over the past 25 years. These hand-painted marquee posters, advertising each current and upcoming show, occupy the niches on either side of the theatre’s front porch. Since 1974, when Katy Thompson started painting them, they have been auctioned off each season to benefit the theatre.
Since 1983, Kate has been joined by other local painters, offering a wonderful variety of styles. This show includes posters by Jesse Beecher, Laura Campbell, Peggy Johnson, Rosy Lamb, Candace Maher, Penny Purcell, Katherine Sandoz, and Todd Sutherland. Hunt Barclay and Everett O’Neil are represented by small reproductions. some of these posters can be seen online at our Flickr page.
Enjoy the exhibit, and check out THIS year’s marquee posters – and shows – across the street at Barnstormers!
