PHILLIPs' MILL Juried Art Show

A Bucks County Tradition

93rd Juried Art Show at Phillips' Mill - New Hope, Pa. - Sept 24-Oct 30, 2022


September 24—OCTOBER 30, 2022

The Phillips’ Mill Art Committee continues its 93-year tradition of producing one of the region’s most prestigious art exhibitions. Over the years we’ve adjusted and refined the show, always keeping in mind the special character of the show. This year we reinstate in-person jurying, a rarity in our modern era. Our community believes jurors are best able to appreciate artwork in person, where they can see color, texture, and brushstrokes more clearly.

The artwork will be displayed in our 18th-century grist mill, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The stone building with broad timbered beams has been a beautiful setting for art for nearly a century. It is the birthplace of the New Hope School, influential in the American Impressionist Movement.

Thanks to a generous anonymous donation, we will continue to present the show online as well. This gives us the opportunity to promote artists beyond our local community and also supports increased sales of their works.

Signature Image for the 93rd Phillips' Mill Juried Art Exhibition

Patricia Allingham Carlson’s work, "Lights at Night," was selected as the Signature Image for the 93nd Annual Juried Art Show at Phillips' Mill from nearly two dozen submissions.

"We were thrilled that so many artists entered the competition," said Gene Underwood, Chair of the Signature Image committee. "All the entrants submitted beautiful work, and gave the committee much to discuss. The winning entry depicts a diverse group enjoying the Mill, and its community spirit helped it win the competition."

2022 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.

Luiz Vilela

When Luiz Vilela was a young child, living on a farm in Brazil, he would collect images he liked from the Reader’s Digest and glue them to his grandmother’s front porch, imagining them to be an art collection. “I loved any kind of printed images; I was crazy about books and magazines,” he recalls.

Vilela studied architecture and urbanism at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro. After graduation, he worked as an illustrator and window designer at an advertising agency and later as an assistant to theater set designer Helio Eichbauer, who encouraged him to move to New York City. There he studied illustration and graphic design at the Pratt Institute, worked at a book publisher and took figurative painting classes at the Art Students League. 

Today, the award-winning painter is proud and overjoyed to be recognized as the 2022 Honored Artist for the 93rd Annual Phillips’ Mill Juried Art Show. He has been participating in the show since he moved to the Bucks County area in 2001.

He loves to paint in oil, although he is well-versed in watercolor, charcoal, pastel, and pencil and paper. He finds beauty all around him, and is widely recognized for his scenes of Bucks County and the Delaware River towns, particularly local landmarks like the Boat House in Lambertville. 

“I am just an artist trying to share the beauty I see every day, the beautiful places I've been to and translated onto the canvas, and the lovely people I've met in my life. Beauty is everywhere. I am grateful to be able to share it.”

Jurors Shape the Show



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 93rd Phillips' Mill Art Exhibition.

Supporters Make it All Possible

TO our benefactors and Patrons


Thank you to all who support our historic juried art show. You enable us to continue the legacy of William Lathrop, founder of the Phillips’ Mill Community Association along with his friends Daniel Garber, Fern Coppedge, John Folinsbee, Mary Elizabeth Price, Edward Redfield and the many other New Hope School artists who became the core of Pennsylvanian Impressionism. They were devoted to exhibiting the art of their time, just as we are committed to showing the art of ours. Your support is invaluable.
