The Spencerville Mill Foundation invites the public to enjoy ‘Pixels & Paint’, the final exhibit of the 2021 season. This exhibition is a diverse collection of works by local artists Barry Fawcett and Christina (Chris) Chrysler. Both these artists have made significant contributions to Mill events by donating their creativity and skills. The recent addition of a gallery hanging system on the upper level of the facility during the 2020 pandemic closure has allowed the Mill to feature art exhibitions for the first time in years.
Visitors to the Pixels & Paint exhibit can expect to see pieces in a variety of subjects and media including photography, digital art, mixed media, acrylic and oil. “Our art is very different, both in medium and subject, which makes for a really interesting cross-section of work to display” says Chrysler. “After over a year of lockdowns, it’s nice to dust our work off and get it up on the walls for people to see,” adds Fawcett, “and if sharing our work can give back to our community, all the better.” A portion of all sales will go directly to the Spencerville Mill Foundation in support of future programming and community events.
‘Pixels & Paint’ Exhibit, Saturday October 16 & Sunday October 17, 10am to 4pm. The historic Spencerville Mill & Museum is the last remaining mill on the South Nation River, operating from 1811- 1972. The Mill now serves as a museum and special events venue open to the public during the summer months.
