The 2022 Phillips’ Mill Youth Art Exhibition showcased the works of students from a record number of 23 area high schools. The youth art program was established at Phillips’ Mill in 2014 to give young artists in our region the chance to display their work through Phillips’ Mill, and be awarded for their achievements.

We were excited to have Bill Jersey as this year’s juror.

About Youth Art

Established in 1929, the Phillips’ Mill Juried Art Show is one of the most prestigious in the area, attracting some of the most talented artists in our region.

Phillips’ Mill Youth Art now does the same, inviting the participation of students from high schools within a 25-mile radius of the Mill. Each year, Phillips’ Mill reaches out to educators in art departments of more than 20 high schools, who select works to be in the show. These works are then juried for awards of cash prizes with judging in four categories: Painting, Works on Paper, Photography and 3-Dimensional Works.

The art teachers have been enthusiastic supporters as well as integral partners in putting on the show. The exhibition could not continue without these dedicated teachers. We thank them!

Every year since its inception, the show has grown, with more artists and high schools represented and more works displayed. The amount of prize money awarded has also increased thanks to the generosity of our sponsors.

The exhibition is free for the schools and the artists, no commission on sales is charged, and there is no admission fee for visitors. It augments the unique contribution of Phillips’ Mill to art in the community.

If you are interested in having your school participate in next year's show, email us at
