The Clarke County Historical Association is pleased to announce the return of the fall showing of Art at the Mill. From October 1st through 16th, the historic Burwell-Morgan Mill in Millwood, VA will once again display artwork from some of the region’s most talented artists. A Shenandoah Valley tradition, Art at the Mill has grown over the past 26 years into one of the region’s largest and most popular art events.
Each year, the Burwell-Morgan Mill in the quaint village of Millwood becomes an extraordinary art gallery. Art at the Mill has become one of the premier art fundraising shows in the mid-Atlantic region, attracting artists and buyers from more than a dozen states.
Offering visitors the unique opportunity to experience exceptional, affordable art in a historic setting Art at the Mill continues to attract an enthusiastic following of artists and art enthusiasts. Over 200 artists submitted works for consideration by the jury, and close to 1,000 works of original art were selected to be displayed and sold. Visitors to this fall’s show will find exquisite sculpture, colorful oils, delicate watercolors, fine woodworking, and exceptional pottery of all sizes, shapes and styles.
Art at the Mill is CCHA’s primary fundraiser, providing the operating funds for both the Mill and the Museum and Archives. CCHA retains 40% of each sale, the artist 60%. A portion of CCHA’s proceeds also goes to the Sarah P. Trumbower Memorial Scholarship fund, which was established to help a deserving local student pursue a university education in the fine arts.
Art at the Mill is a feast for the senses: people are stunned when they walk through the old door of the mill and are met with so much beautiful art housed in an amazing relic from the 18th century. After you’re done shopping, we suggest you grab a delicious lunch at Locke Modern Country Store across the street and have a picnic in our meadow. Fine art, history, and food in a lovely setting make this a perfect destination for everyone.
