The local area barn paintings below, made by Dr Robert Kroeger of Cincinnati Ohio, will be auctioned off at the Whitley County 4-H Fair on Saturday, July 15th at 1:00 pm in the Whitley County Ag Museum. The paintings are framed in wood from the barn or, in the round barn’s case, from Whitley County. The Museum will receive 50% of the proceeds that will help fund the new sidewalk between the Museum and the main walkway.
Dr. Kroeger’s career includes a 30-year dental practice and four years in the Navy. Now retired, he paints barns in the oil impasto technique. He frames the paintings with reclaimed wood from the century-old barns, adding more history to his art.
