PHILLIPs' MILL Juried Art Show

A Bucks County Tradition


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.”

Supporters Make it All Possible

TO our benefactors and Patrons


We are deeply grateful for the continued support of our benefactors and patrons. During the pandemic, their dedication, vision and generosity made it possible for us to successfully re-imagine the show as an online event. The 2020 Phillips’ Mill Art Show was an impressive achievement, a stunning gallery of artwork accompanied by a fascinating narrative.

In 2021, we returned to our home at the Mill for the show, and presented an online gallery as well. It was an ambitious effort that will allow us to share the amazing artwork of our region with people around the world.

We thank our generous benefactors and patrons and hope you will join them. Together we will build a strong future for the Phillips’ Mill Juried Art Show, founded 92 years ago by William Lathrop.
