Phillips’ Mill members to shine in inaugural art show and sale

Posted

Phillips’ Mill Community Association is celebrating 95 years with a new Mill Members Art Show and Sale.

The depth of the mill members’ artistic talent will be on display for two weekends, March 16-17 and March 23-24, from noon-4 p.m. at the historic mill, located just outside New Hope. This inaugural non-juried show is a salute to the visual arts creativity of mill members and the member founders of Phillips’ Mill Community Association in 1929.

Open to all members of Phillips’ Mill, the show will accept submissions in the categories of fine arts or crafts, including painting, drawing, mixed media, collage, printmaking, digital art, photography, sculpture, ceramics, jewelry, textiles and woodworking.

Registration via Smarter Entry is open Feb. 15-March 7. A link to Smarter Entry is available at www.phillipsmill.org/art/member-art-show. Space in the Mill is limited, so don’t delay signing up. Registration is first come, first served. Become a member of the Mill, if not already, at www.phillipsmill.org/membership.

“The Members Art Show & Sale is the mill’s way of honoring our member artists and our community. We hope this inaugural event will be the start of an ongoing tradition of further supporting our artists,” noted committee chair Shawn Campbell, a ceramic artist from Milford, N.J., and the recipient of the 2023 Patrons’ Award for Sculpture at the 94th Juried Art Show.

Year after year, mill members volunteer their time and talent to bring the finest exhibitions, shows, events, and programs to the community with expert eyes and welcoming smiles. This new show gives members a moment in the spotlight to display their work for all to enjoy, and an opportunity to join a new committee, have fun putting on an art show, contribute to the Mill’s programming, and make some new friends. To volunteer, email Campbell at MemberShow@phillipsmill.org.

Phillips’ Mill Community Association is located just north of New Hope at 2619 River Road, New Hope. For information, call 215-882-0582, or visit www.phillipsmill.org.
