Earth Day - Rain Barrels

The Mechanicsburg Earth Day Festival on Sat April 26th features a silent auction of hand painted rain barrels. Each of the local artists put a unique and creative spin on their rain barrel.

It's Raining, It's Pouring is by Caromal Colours of Mechanicsburg.  Carol Kemery painted and stenciled this lovely barrel.
Dream Doodles by Patti Van Brederode.  Patti interprets this piece as a mixture of Peter Max, Keith Haring and fairy glitter...bright colors to bring some vibrancy to eco-preservation in your back yard!

 This untitled rain barrel is by Brownyn Jean Hughes of Brath & Hughes Fine Art Gallery.

Vincent's Irises is the work of the other half of Brath & Hughes Fine Art Gallery, Mary Beth Brath
and finally, Fishes of the Reef is the work of seven Mechanicsburg Area High School, Art IV Students!

All of these rain barrels are currently on display in the Simpson Public Library and will be up for silent auction. Bidding begins April 4th and will conclude at 1 p.m. on the Square in Mechanicsburg, PA at the Mechanicsburg Earth Day Festival

They all look great - it would be hard to choose a barrel to bid on.
