Dreibelbis- Nailers Row in situ_edited.j

Barnstone Art for Kids is proud to present our 2024 featured artwork - “Nailer’s Row” is a fabulously dynamic masterwork by renown local artist, Neil Dreibelbis.

We are proud to offer this work that highlights our wonderful town’s history. We are also so grateful to our friend Neil, whose work and life we celebrate with gratitude and love.
