Northern Virginia friends, or any of you who may be visiting the DC area between now and May 11, I do not want you to miss Art At The Mill at the Burwell-Morgan Mill in Millwood, Virginia! This is a delightful event and venue that our family discovered in the autumn of 2011 when we were staying in a vacation home in the area. It's almost like finding a diamond in the rough. Most folks I have talked to in NOVA do not know where Millwood is or that this art show takes place there, normally twice a year (there is only a spring show for 2014). Don't miss out on this treasure!
This event is sponsored by the Clarke County Historical Association. 28% of each purchase supports the Association and the preservation of the Burwell-Morgan Mill. 2% goes to a scholarship fund in memory of Sarah P. Trumbower. The mill is quite unique in that it has an interior waterwheel. It is still a working mill, with grinding taking place on Saturdays. The kids and I want to go one Saturday to see how it all works and buy some freshly ground flour.
There are more than 1500 works of fine art by 300+ artists displayed in the mill. You can view oils, watercolors, pastels, drawings, sculpture, pottery, stained glass and woodworking. Here is an idea of what you can enjoy. (Disclaimer: Since these items are for sale, they may have been sold since I was at the mill today.)
