Art at the Mill


Art is back at the Mill! While the pandemic forced CCHA to cancel Art at the Mill, we are still able to bring you some great art! This fall, we're launching an Artist in Residence program. Each Saturday from 10-5 and Sunday from 12-5 a different artist will perform art demonstrations and sell their work. A portion of the proceeds go towards CCHA's operating costs.

Given the current situation with COVID-19, the Clarke County Historical Association has decided to cancel this fall’s showing of Art at the Mill, which was scheduled to open to the public on Saturday, September 26th, with Patron’s Night occurring on Friday, September 25th

The cancellation of both the spring and fall showings of Art at the Mill leaves the Association with a significant budget shortfall for 2020.  As a result, CCHA is launching a Burwell-Morgan Mill Sponsorship drive that will allow people to donate at various levels in lieu of purchasing artwork and/or Patron’s Night tickets.  100% of donations go towards the general operation costs of CCHA, which include the preservation and maintenance of the historic Burwell-Morgan Mill.These donations will also 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.  All contributions are tax deductible.  Please contact Nathan Stalvey, Director, for more information.  This email address is being protected from spambots.

 2020 Sarah P. Trumbower Scholarship Winner

Congratulations to the 2020 Sarah P. Trumbower Scholarship winner, Lily Graham!  Lily went to Clarke County High School and took four different art classes in total that focused on the basics, fine arts, and ceramics. Studio time was provided during the day where she would practice painting and drawing. Most of her themes are of women, nature, and feminism, exploring it through bright colors and texture. Lily aspires to own her own art business someday, whether it be an art gallery or a little shop where to sell her work. She's already started getting her foot in the door by doing commission work and selling her work at art shows and auctions. Lily will be attending NVCC this fall to focus on liberal arts while practicing art during her free time, and planning on setting up an online business soon!  Good luck, Lily!



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.
