Successful Event at the Martintown Grist Mill

The Martintown Grist Mill has been renovated in recent years turning it into a thriving hub for artists, authors, entertainers, food vendors and local produce vendors.  Thousands of volunteer hours go into the weekly, summer events that has drawn the entire community closer and breathed new life into this tiny village.

As a former member of the community (my husband was born there), I was privileged to show some of my art this past weekend.  The hot weather would have been stifling had there not been an intermittent breeze from the west through the open windows and fans placed strategically around the mill.  Still, people streamed through there all day and could be seen chatting with the artists and volunteers.

It was a successful venture for me because I sold 10 pieces of art; but, had I not sold a thing, I would have enjoyed the ambience,  the comraderie and the chance to visit with friends and relative and meet new, fellow artists.
