New Hope, PA – Members of Phillips’ Mill are thrilled to welcome the public to its newest exhibition, the Mill Members Art Show & Sale, on two consecutive weekends, March 16-17 and March 23-24, from noon-4:00 PM at the historic Mill.

 

This non-juried show is a salute to the visual arts creativity of Mill members and the founding members of Phillips’ Mill Community Association nearly a century ago. The exhibition will showcase a range of fine arts and crafts throughout both levels of the Mill, upstairs and down. The Mill’s membership is rich with artists well-known in the community who will be exhibiting work never before shown at the Mill, including paintings, works on paper, sculpture, ceramics, photography, textiles, and more. All works will be for sale and a portion of every sale will benefit the upkeep of the 18th-century former grist mill.

“The Members Art Show & Sale is the Mill’s way of honoring our member artists and our community,” noted show chair Shawn Campbell, a ceramic artist from Milford, NJ and the recipient of the 2023 Patrons’ Award for Sculpture at the 94th Juried Art Show.

 

“Visitors should expect to be surprised by the range of creativity on view –– not to mention how collectible the artwork and fine crafts are,” added award-winning still life artist and committee member Gene Underwood of Buckingham, PA.

A fitting tribute to the founders of Phillips’ Mill as an artistic community, the Mill Members Art Show & Sale pays homage to the earliest exhibitions of the newly established Phillips’ Mill Community Association in the spring and fall of 1929. Featuring the work of its founding members, including William Lathrop, PMCA’s first president, Daniel Garber, John Folinsbee, Mary Perkins Taylor, Morgan Colt, and Edward Redfield, the exhibitions marked the Mill as the home of the New Hope School artists who were to become the heart and soul of the Bucks County artistic community that still thrives today.
