Art at the Mill to Open 42nd Show

The 42nd showing of Art at the Mill, the Shenandoah Valley’s largest and most popular art show and sale, opens Saturday,  April 28 and runs daily through May 13, 2012 at the Burwell‐Morgan Mill in Millwood, Virginia.

The Clarke County Historical Association, sponsor of the event, received submissions from over 300 artists from ten states and the jury has selected over 1,000 diverse pieces of original art to be displayed and sold.

The Mill’s interior becomes an impressive art gallery every spring and fall.

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.
