Nancy Reed Jones, an artist member of the Wallkill River School, has created a 24-foot mural for Soons Orchards in New Hampton. The mural was unveiled recently at Soon’s.
It’s part of a project to develop a Farm/Art Trail in Orange County, in which open-to-the-public farms are showcased by Orange County Tourism, and then are paired with artists who are inspired by them.
A grand opening of the Farm/Art Trail is scheduled for September 2014; until then, the 20 artists painting for 20 farms will be working and exhibiting. You can see Reed Jones’ effort now (in full, that is) at Soon’s.
