Stover Mill Gallery Announces Return of “Juried Art Show”

ART SHOW RETURNS: The nonprofit Stover Mill Gallery will host its “Juried Art Show” this fall after a two-year hiatus. It will be the ninth juried show for the gallery. A call for entries will be out later this summer.

In its 62nd year of operation, the Stover Mill Gallery in Erwinna, Pa., has announced the return of its “Juried Art Show” this fall after a two-year hiatus. It will be the ninth juried show for the gallery, which is delighted to have two exemplary jurors for this year’s submissions.

Following her studies at the famed Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, N.Y., Mavis Smith worked as a children’s book illustrator, creating over 70 books for prestigious publishers. Working from her Solebury, Pa., studio, she is best known for her paintings in egg tempera, a medium that enhances the surreal aspect of her subjects. Smith has exhibited her paintings in Amsterdam, Santa Fe, and New York City, as well as a one-person show at the Michener Art Museum in Doylestown, Pa.

Rhonda Garland directs the Silverman Gallery of Bucks County, which showcases the work of artists who reflect the traditions of regional Impressionism. She is also a painter whose works reflect her fascination with a broad range of artists, including Diebenkorn, Miro, Klee, and the recently rediscovered Hilma af Klint. Her paintings in acrylic, watercolor, ink, and gouache have been shown and sold in a number of regional galleries and juried shows. Garland is an expert calligrapher, for which she has won a number of awards.

The call for entries will be out later this summer and artists can submit their applications beginning in early August through EntryThingy or via a link which will be on the gallery website at StoverMillGallery.org on the Juried Show page.

The Stover Mill Gallery – located at 852 River Road (Rt. 32) in Erwinna, Pa. – is owned and operated by the all-volunteer Tinicum Civic Association, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. All proceeds are used for the support of other nonprofit groups serving the local community, and for the maintenance of the historic Stover Mill.
