95th Juried Art Show at Phillips’ Mill calls for Signature Image entries


The committee for the 95th Annual Juried Art Show at Phillips’ Mill invites artists to submit an artistic representation of the historic Mill for consideration as this year’s signature image.

Submissions will be accepted from March 1 to 5 p.m. March 19, at There is no submission fee.

This is an opportunity for artists to showcase their talent and gain a wider awareness of their work. The image selected will be used on posters, ads, invitations, postcards, social media, banners and on the Phillips’ Mill website, in short, on all marketing, publicity and advertising materials for this milestone, 95th anniversary juried art show.

The winning artist will receive a $400 honorarium and the artwork will be featured for sale at the annual juried show. The winning artist is free to submit additional entries to the show as outlined in the show’s prospectus.

Other benefits to being selected for this honor include promotion of the artist and their work through press releases and social media. The artist will be featured in the Mill’s monthly newsletter, “The Grist,” and on the mill’s popular ArtTalk program featuring monthly online interviews with artists, writers, curators, and other creatives. There is also potential for the selected artist to be profiled in local media.

Previous years’ images have included whimsical as well as traditional depictions of the Mill and its surroundings. Collages, watercolors, oils and acrylics have all been chosen, so artists should feel free to use their favorite medium, with the exception of photography, to express their vision of the Mill, inside or out.

The mill encourages artists of all cultural backgrounds to submit their work and to follow their inspirations, traditional or contemporary, representational or abstract. Images selected for past shows can be seen at

After a preliminary review of all submissions, finalists will be selected and notified by March 22 with instructions to drop off the original artwork for in person review the following week. The winning entry will be selected and the winning artist notified on or before March 30.
