Phillips Mill Photography Exhibition

Now entering its 27th year, the prestigious Phillips Mill Photographic Exhibition is proud to announce that Emmet Gowin will be our juror this spring. We would like to make sure that all your club members have the opportunity for their own best imagery to be seen by this internationally renowned photographer, who taught for 25 years at Princeton University and whose art has been the subject of numerous books and museum exhibits.

The Phillips Mill Show is unique in seeking submissions representing the most personally satisfying and aesthetically successful aspects of each photographer’s body of work. Over a dozen awards will be granted in this highly anticipated three-week show, to be held in a historic stone gristmill that has been renovated for presentation purposes and that, ninety years ago, was the birthplace of the vibrant arts movement in the Delaware River Valley. Our website address is https://www.phillipsmillphoto.com.
