Art at the Mill has been in existence for 9 years. it is a juried art & fine craft fair to be held on July 22, 2017.  The fair is held outside nestled among the trees and surrounded by historical buildings in the beautiful Richfield Nature/Historical Park (Washington County - Wisconsin.) Would you be interested in applying?

Amenities for exhibiting artists:
  • Ample space between booths

So, apply early for your best chance of being selected.)  

Advertising is also very critical for art fairs.  This event will be widely advertised in print, broadcast & social media and promoted through many local businesses. We want to reach as many potential attendees as possible. Free admission to the fair and the extra benefit of being able to tour historic buildings are attractive factors.

An application form and guidelines are attached and also available at:

Plein Air Painters of America Master Workshops 9/25-26-2017

from:Plein Air Painters of America <>

Unlike any workshop you've ever taken, PAPA's Master Workshop Series features six highly sought-after instructors, teaching two 2-day intensive classes, in the gorgeous retreat setting of Madeline Island School for the Arts. You will work consecutively with two instructors, have a critique session with a third instructor then finish the week with a paint out. Evenings will be filled with gourmet meals, wine and round table discussions on topics ranging from 'how to get noticed by magazines, galleries and museums' to 'how to write a bio that matters,' and 'open mic night' where you ask the panel anything and everything.
