Advice to Young Artists: “Just Create” 

Ellen Pietsch remembers going to see her older sister’s artwork on display at the Phillips’ Mill Youth Art Exhibition and thinking, “Wow, this artwork is so out of the box, things I haven’t seen before. Paper cutouts in a shadow box, a bunch of shadows reflected off the light. How do people get these ideas?”

Our Historic Site

The historic Phillips’ Mill has been a welcoming space for visual and performing artists for more than 100 years. Yet, our quaint center for the arts was once a working grist mill, a structure of historic significance that we must preserve for generations to come.


“The single most important component of a camera is the 12 inches behind it!”

Ansel Adams

“Artists don’t need anyone else to make their art, but they do need to have it seen if they want their voice heard or they want to pursue a career.”

Robert Beck

“I have been coming to the Phillips’ Mill art show for years and seen some incredible work and met many great artists. Year after year, this show is a reminder of how much talent there is in this area.”
