An Invitation to Artists | 2024 Signature Image

February 19, 2024

An Invitation to Artists
Enter March 1 – 19, 2024

The 95th Annual Juried Art Show at Phillips' Mill committee invites you to submit an artistic representation of our historic Mill for consideration as our signature image for this year's show. This is a wonderful opportunity to showcase your talent and gain a wider awareness of your work. The image selected will be used on posters, ads, invitations, postcards, social media, banners and on the Phillips' Mill website, in short, on all marketing, publicity and advertising materials for this milestone art show. 

The winning artist will receive a $400 honorarium and the artwork will be featured for sale at the annual juried show. (The winning artist is free to submit additional entries to the show as outlined in the show’s prospectus.) This is a dynamic opportunity for high visibility of your work, your style, and your name within our community of collectors.

Other benefits to being selected for this honor:

  • Promotion of the artwork in ads and press releases
  • Promotion in the Mill’s social media
  • Promotion of the artist and image on the Mill's ArtTalk program
  • Potential for the artist to be profiled in local media

Previous years' images have included whimsical as well as traditional depictions of the Mill and its surroundings. Collages, watercolors, oils and acrylics have all been chosen, so artists should feel free to use their favorite medium, other than photography, to show us their vision of the Mill, inside or out. We encourage artists of all cultural backgrounds to submit their work and to follow their inspirations, traditional or contemporary, representational or abstract. To see images from past shows, visit the Past Exhibitions page on our website at

Have fun. Let your creative spirit guide you!
