Our second photo exhibition of the year, the “Not Your Run of the Mill” Photo Show, is a members’ show featuring the works of the volunteers/photographers who work so hard every year to produce the prestigious annual juried Phillips’ Mill Photographic Exhibition.
Now in its third year, the “Not Your Run of the Mill Photo Show,” showcasing members’ works, had long been a dream before becoming a reality during the pandemic. It was at that time that the volunteers/photographers who produce the annual juried Phillips’ Mill Photographic Exhibition unified to create something quite exceptional: a cohesive, creative group of photo-oriented Mill members.
The Start of a New Tradition
In response to ongoing COVID-19 guidelines, our innovative committee members opted to forgo a juried show of prints on the wall in 2021, and instead produced a singular, potent force of digital imagery. The “Not Your Run of the Mill Photo Show” was born!
All 29 image makers represented in that inaugural show in 2021, which you can view below, have a personal and emotional connection and commitment to the broad professional craft of photographic arts.
The tradition continued in 2022, only this time the members’ show was displayed on the walls of the historic Phillips’ Mill. The group’s core hallmark to present the strongest of personal work was clearly reflected in this show. Some refined, developed and went deeper into a look, one they may have constructed over decades, while others experimented with new work.
Each artist was invited to submit a body of work of up to eight images. This show is so unique because it gives artists the freedom to use photography to speak at length with the infectious visual medium. A declarative statement, a soft emotion, a composite or creation that stirs the soul or ignites a memory/dream, all wonderful in their freshness.
