2021 HONORED ARTIST
Each year we choose to honor an artist who has been a loyal participant in the Phillips’ Mill Art Exhibition over many years.
The woman sits on her heels, her knees wide for stability. Her hands steady a stone block on her head. Her body is strong, suitable for her burden, and yet the folds on her skirt are fluid in contrast. She is a caryatid, a modern take on the figures of women used as pillars in ancient Greek architecture. This bronze caryatid, sculpted by George Anthonisen, lives at the James A. Michener Art Museum in Doylestown.
Phillips' Mill is proud to name George Anthonisen our 2021 Honored Artist. His work will be featured in our 92nd Juried Art Show, as it has many times in the past. He is creating a new piece for the show.
George Anthonisen is a local artist with an international reputation, whose works are in the U.S. Capitol, at the World Health Organization Headquarters in Geneva and at Carnegie Hall in New York City. He’s been called “one of America’s outstanding figurative sculptors.” Much closer, you can see more of his work at the Michener Art Museum and at the Philip & Muriel Berman Museum of Art at Ursinus College in Collegeville.
His work is so widely collected both for its extraordinary beauty and the loving care he uses to bring his figures to life. His work mixes the refinement and mythology of deeply familiar traditional sculpture with a modern sensibility in both its aesthetic and its subject matter. George approaches his subject with a refined eye and the tenderness of a humanist.

EVERY SHOW IS UNIQUE
The Phillips’ Mill Art Exhibition is a juried show. The jurors’ selections from the many submissions by our talented pool of local artists are what give our show its look each year. Every year we have new judges. This process gives our show a different look each year, but the look is always based in our local community. Our jurors are accomplished artists in their own right, often with an academic background. We’ve had curators and art historians serve as jurors as well. We’re very proud of the shows they design for us and welcome our esteemed jurors of the 92nd Phillips' Mill Art Exhibition.
