Strange but True Exhibition Facts

Bruce McMillan's Summer in the Highlands, Iceland, has the unique distinction of being not only the lowest priced art in the Barn Gallery 2016 juried exhibition at $150, but perhaps, after George Burk's fine tiny paintings, among the highest priced paintings per square inch, at $4.29/ square inch. The highest priced painting, Four Grooms on Ogunquit Beach, by Norman E. West, acrylic, at $7,500 is about $2.43 / square inch, wonderfully silly facts.
