Westchester Barn Hosting Art Sale And Wine Tasting

OSSINING, NY (WCBS 880) – A very unassuming sign that reads “Sundial Farm” leads the way off Route 134 in Ossining up a dirt path to the farm, and the barn sale – a gallery of vintage and unique pieces of furniture and lighting.

LISTEN: WCBS 880’s Catherine Cioffi reports

Barn sale partner Tim Arnold tells WCBS 880 reporter Catherine Cioffi that it is “decidedly eclectic and I think that’s what people are now enjoying.”

Arnold says they’re out to prove that you don’t have to go all the way to ‘The City’ to get rare and unique pieces for your home.

To highlight that, starting tonight, Thursday, September 16, they’ll be featuring works from three artists.

“I think people are really pleasantly surprised to find the kind of high-end, high quality pieces right here in Westchester,” says Arnold.

    Oh our precious Sundial! I learned to ride horses there from 1968 on, and I had so many of my absolutely fondest memories there during the eight years of my childhood that were spent there. From my memories of “swimming on horseback” in a pond somewhere down adjacent trails, and The Silver Snaffles 4-H Club Horse Trials each August for which we prepared on Monday work nights followed by a stop at Friendly’s for all, I love the memories, right down to the “Horse-less Horse Shows” (with tails we wore and made of yarn), which garnered a NY Times article now accessible in online archives. How wonderfully that the place has been preserved, and in such a respectful and sophisticated manner. Of course, I wish that hay bales were still stacked, and towering high to an eight year old climbing in its hay loft, and that drinking water was still waiting for a thirsty horse in the barrel that came up to just below my chin when I first started riding there. And how my heart broke so painfully when “Chocolate” grew ill with age.
    I have to see the place from afar now that I have moved to California. But I appreciate posts of photos both from now, and way back when others rode and showed there. For many people’s lives have been enriched by having been so lucky as to have known and enjoyed being at Sundial Farm.
