Art at the Mill



Due to recent CDC restrictions and to ensure that everyone stays safe and healthy, we will be cancelling the Spring showing of Art at the Mill.  Everyone is disappointed as we’ve all been working hard on the show. 

In continuing to support the arts, and with the costs we have already incurred for the show, we hope that you will consider a donation to the Clarke County Historical Association that will go towards Art at the Mill.  These donations will also help us prepare for the fall Art at the Mill show, as well as help support the Sarah P. Trumbower Scholarship that supports Clarke County students pursuing a degree in the Arts.  To donate, please click here, or send a check to CCHA, P.O. Box 306, Berryville, VA  22611.

 We apologize for any inconvenience, and look forward to better news for the 2020 Fall Show.

Congratulations to the 2018 Sarah P. Trumbower Scholarship winner, Kamryn Anderson.  Kamryn enjoys working with ceramics, creating digital artwork, and drawing. She has been on the National Art Honor Society since the tenth grade which has allowed her to contiune creating art throughout high school. Kamryn has also been on the yearbook staff for three years and the editor for the past two years. Creating the yearbook made it an easy choice for her when choosing a major. This fall, she will be attending James Madison University to study Graphic Design.  Good luck, Kamryn!



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. 


 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.

DSC 0088Art at the Mill is CCHA's primary fundraiser, providing the operating funds for both the Mill and the Museum and Archives. CCHA retains 35% of each sale, the artist 65%. 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.
