Art at the Mill
October 1-16, 2016
In October 1990, a small group of artists got together and proposed an idea for an art show at the Burwell-Morgan Mill. Using whatever material they could find to install the art, these artists worked tirelessly to produce what was to become the very first Art at the Mill show. Over time, Art at the Mill has grown from a three-day show of a handful of art into one of the most recognized and prestigious art shows in the region. Though Art at the Mill has grown substantially over the years to include thousands of artists and buyers from all over the country, the show’s basic principles remain the same: to have fun, bring together artists and promote the extraordinary artistic talent of the region.
Art at the Mill will be open this spring during the following hours: Sundays-Fridays 12-5, Saturdays 10-6.
The Burwell-Morgan Mill is located at 15 Tannery Lane, Millwood, VA 22646
Adults $5, Seniors $3, kids 12 and under are free

About the Show
Each year, the Burwell-Morgan Mill in the quaint village of Millwood, Virginia, becomes an extraordinary art gallery. Art at the Mill has become one of the premier art shows in the mid-Atlantic region, attracting artists and buyers from more than a dozen states.
During each show, around 300 artists display more than 1,000 pieces of art of all descriptions and media. Oil paintings are predominant, but other types of painting, mixed-media, sculpture, fine woodworking, and pottery round out the stunning diversity of the show. There is truly something for every taste, budget, and decor.
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%. CCHA proceeds go to the maintenance and operations of the Burwell-Morgan Mill, our Museum in Berryville, costs associated with hosting Art at the Mill, special programming, and to the Sarah P. Trumbower Memorial Scholarship fund awarded to a Clarke County student pursuing 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 anyone.
