Phillips’ Mill hosts two photo exhibits

After a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic, the Phillips’ Mill Community Association welcomes spring with two back-to-back exhibitions of fine art photography.

The annual ‘Phillips’ Mill’ juried photography exhibit runs through April 22 at the historic Phillips’ Mill on River Road in New Hope, Pennsylvania, and will be followed by the opening of ‘Not Your Run of the Mill Members Photo Show”. April 24.

The Phillips’ Mill Photography Exhibit, considered Bucks County’s first juried photography exhibit, features 136 works of fine art photography. Selected from more than 1,100 submissions by juror Bob Krist, alumnus of New Hope and internationally renowned for his photographic work for National Geographic and Smithsonian, the show runs the gamut of imagery.

Krist said he was “blown away by the breadth and depth of the work. Whether it was nature, landscape, fine art, portraiture, street photography, there was so much high quality work that selecting the winners was a very painful but rewarding experience.

Created in 1991 by exhibit founder and New Hope native Spencer Saunders, the exhibit celebrates and promotes the art of photography. From the very beginning, it had as a recurring theme “Photography as art, the photographer as artist”.

Following the juried exhibition, from April 24-30 will be held the “Not Your Run of the Mill Photo Show”, showcasing the work of members of the Mill Photo Committee. These passionate photographers are responsible for putting on the show for the jury and sharing their art and interests throughout the year.
