Officially titled The Harriet Jacoby Anderson Fiber Arts Studio… 

Our new fiber arts studio space was named after the founder and first Director of the Dairy Barn Arts Center who was active in 1978.  Between 2016 and 2017 the Dairy Barn underwent a massive renovation and expansion.  While planning the new addition, we knew we wanted to make the fiber arts a priority at the Dairy Barn and honor our long history of involvement with the contemporary fiber arts world.  The new fiber arts studio is now a place where artists from near and far can come together to share their knowledge, exchange skills, get inspired, and teach new artists the skills of their craft.  Additionally, the Fiber Arts Studio is a place where members of the community can test their artistic prowess, as well as learn new and valuable skills that help people live more sustainable lives.  Harriet’s vision of The Dairy Barn was to include:  “The creation of an area in and around the barn where individual artists (potters, weavers, metalworkers, woodworkers, etc.)  may actually practice their skills” and “A viable school for artisans and craftspersons, drawing upon and serving the great number of such skilled persons from all of southeastern Ohio.”  We seek to honor our founders vision and have been blessed to have the studios construction underwritten by her daughters and grandchildren.   We are truly proud to be able to present to our community the Harriet Jacoby Anderson Fiber Arts Studio.
