The 1st Prallsville Mills Invitational Show

I'll be participating in the first ever Prallsville Mills Invitational Show, Artists of the Mills, at the Prallsville Mills in Stockton, NJ. Opening reception is Friday, Feb 16, from 6 to 9 pm and is open to the public. Other than that, the show is open Saturday and Sunday, Feb 17 and 18, from noon to 5 pm. It's only a 1 weekend show, because the Mill is booked for a lot of events, but I'm glad to be in this one. It's the first invitational that I've been invited to, and the mill is a cool space to show one's art. It reeks with history and the old mill works are still visible inside.

Here are the paintings I'll have hanging (click each for a larger view):

The show is run by the Delaware River Mill Society (DRMS),a non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation of the historic Prallsville Mills industrial complex. They've been running annual juried shows called "Images of the Mills" for a few years, where, as you can guess, each work must be an image of the Mills. They invited 22 award winners from these past shows to be honored in this Invitational Show - we're to be known as the Artists of the Mills.

This was my award winning painting at the 2005 Images of the Mills show:

16x20 oil on canvas


Several building make up the mill complex, but the main building is the large one in this painting - and it's 2 floors of this building where the art exhibitions are held.

I hope you can make it out to Stockton this weekend.
