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 28% of each sale, the artist 70%. The remaining 2% 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. It is a $5,000 scholarship awarded annually.
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.
Congratulations to Erin Murphy, our 2014 Sarah P. Trumbower Memorial Scholarship recipient. A senior from Clarke County High School in Berryville, Erin began her first semester at Virginia Commonwealth University in the fall of 2014. Her artwork could be found in our Art at the Mill Show in Millwood. Two percent of show proceeds go to funding the scholarship.
