There’s a barn right across from Main Street in Hahns Peak Village adorned with antler door handles and surrounded by sculptures. It’s a mystery to most who drive by it or live in the area. 

This weekend, the doors to the barn are being swung open.

“Behind Closed Doors — A Labor of Love” is a pop-up Labor Day show featuring sculptor David Marshall, the owner of the barn. Joining him in North Routt is the work of seven other artists — Jennifer Baker, Gregory Block, Missy Borden, Brian Bonebrake, Dedi Knox and Suzi Mitchell.

“We called it Labor of Love because it’s all the work that all of us just really enjoy working on,” said Mitchell. “It’s a real mix of stuff in there.”

According to Mitchell, many of the pieces have not been displayed locally before. 

The show will be in the two-story barn from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 3, and Sunday, Sept. 4.

Marshall works in Spain at his studio in the Andalusian mountains. He previously had work at Gallery 89, but now his metal and wood sculptures are at his home in Hahns Peak Village. 

His sculptures are just the start of what attendees will see. Baker works with glass, Bonebrake and Block work with oils, while Missy Borden and Suzi Mitchell work with acrylic and mixed media and Dedi Knox paints with watercolor and acrylics. 

“It’s an absolute hodgepodge of things, for sure,” Mitchell said. “It’s not your usual choreographed type of show.”

There is limited parking onsite and guests are asked to not park along Routt County Road 129.
