Phillips’ Mill announces its 84th Juried Art Exhibition

Sep 17, 2013 by


“It was at Phillips’ Mill that art first became real to me, where I came to understand that paintings were not just decorative objects hung on walls but the work of flesh-and-blood people who transmitted what they saw into their own visions.” James A. Michener (1907-1997)

The Phillips’ Mill Art Exhibition has been the premier art show in the Delaware Valley since 1929. Founded by the legendary greats, William Lathrop, Edward Redfield, Daniel Garber and William Taylor, among others, the early shows were intended to display work for friends. Famous artists from the New Hope School and beyond soon began to exhibit on a regular basis. Today more than 350 painters and sculptors submit over 500 works of which about 95 framed pieces are juried into the exhibit. The exhibition has grown steadily in prestige and attracts thousands of visitors each year. This major exhibition invites artists who live within a 25-mile radius of the Mill to enter work for the show. In 2012 the jurors awarded 20 prizes, totaling $11,000.

The show will run from Saturday, September 21 through Saturday October 26.
Open daily 1-5pm
2619 River Road • New Hope, PA 18938 • (215) 862-0582

 

This is year my painting “The Phillips’ Mill” (above) was selected by the Art Committee for its 2013 campaign.

 

“River Mist” (above) submitted into the juried show was selected and it will be featured at the exhibition, as well.
