The 1827 barn at the Joshua Creek Heritage Art Centre has been converted to a gallery that houses receptions, workshops, exhibits as well as weddings and parties. It had long been a dream of owner Sybil Rampen to establish a cultural legacy on her family farm that promotes local heritage, outreach and artistic inspiration.

  4. Great that she was able to convert the barn.

  5. That is a beautiful repurpose!
    It’s wonderful she had the vision and the means to accomplish her own inspirational idea.

  6. Love the beams and wood in this one! Beautiful shot, Lesley!

  7. wow, it’s beautiful!

  8. Great way to perserve something so old! Looks like a very nice place!

  9. Very nice, very very nice! I love the beams, they’re so beautiful & dramatic for the space! That used to be an actual barn? Incredible work

    Thanks so much for joining =)

  10. This is wonderful. I went to visit some people who lived in a barn they had converted into their home and it was out of this world. Have no clue how much $$$ it took to complete it, but it was drop dear gorgeous. Using a barn this way is such a fine idea. I am sure all the things are shown off beautifully. Nice place to have a reception, too. genie

  11. Now that is a great way to see a barn. It is very sad to see in my area they are falling down because people cannot afford to invest in their keeping. A shame. I know we spend lots of time and money keeping ours up. I love the way the beams are exposed. I am in Ontario. B

  12. Another wonderful repurposed barn. – Margy
