The Clarke County Historical Association is inviting all artists and their families and friends to attend the Artist Celebration this Sunday from 2-5PM at the Art at the Mill exhibit at the Burwell-Morgan in Millwood, VA. This event is free and light refreshments will be served. Come meet the artists. I will be there from 4-5PM.
On the way to the Mill you may want to take a short detour to Paris VA and have lunch at the amazing Ashby Inn
. Be sure to call ahead for reservations. It's a beautiful drive to the mill and the Ashby Inn. And, Paris VA is especially lovely this time of year. There is also a lovely gourmet sandwich shop across the road from the Mill.
The drive to the Burwell-Morgan Mill in Millwood VA is a little over an hour from Arlington VA. Take I-66 west about 52 miles to Exit 23 for US-17N/VA-55 W/Winchester Rd towards Delaphane/Paris. Follow US-17 north about 8 miles. Turn left onto John S. Mosby Hwy (US17N, US 50W). After 6.5 miles turn right onto Bishop Meade Rd (Route 255). Continue going straight ahead where the road splits. The Mill parking lot will be on your left.
I hope to see you there!
Below are some photos of some of the walls of art at the Mill when I was there last week. They held art in reserve to replace the empty spaces as art sold. So, there will still be plenty of wonderful, affordable art to see - and a chance to meet the various artists.
