The Clarke County Historical Association, sponsor of the event, received submissions from over 250 artists from 11 states and the jury has selected over 1,000 diverse pieces of original art to be displayed and sold.

Over the years, Art at the Mill has garnered a large and enthusiastic following of both artists and patrons with its unique setting, beautiful and affordable art, and authentic atmosphere. Interesting sculpture, colorful oils, elegant watercolors, fine woodworking, and exceptional pottery fill an 18th‐century operating gristmill for two weeks every spring and fall.

Artists keep 70% of their sales; the CCHA receives 30% to use for ongoing operation of the mill and its new museum and the funding of an annual art scholarship.

  1. Sally Trumbower was a great leader of the Clarke County Historical Association. She had vision and education in art history. She helped Bill Whiting display his colorful landscape paintings. Sally and Bill are gone now and I will miss them very much and remember their love and good service to our community.
