Art At The Mill

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.) 

The Burwell-Morgan Mill is not only a unique, historic, working mill, but it also has beautifully landscaped grounds that are the perfect picnic spot for one of our lovely Northern Virginia spring days. You can take your own picnic or pick one up from the charming Locke Store just across the street.
