20th Anniversary Studio Artist Homecoming 
new work by Williams Mill's most successful studio artists

December 7-31, 2016

At this time of year, “home” we all develop a strong sense of home; the place we go back to, to be among those we feel comfortable and who know us best, where we can be ourselves.  Nine artists are doing just that at Williams Mill.  They are returning to the Mill from careers that have taken them continents and lifetimes away from their early years there when they were young studio partners.  Their growing friendships and mutual understanding helped one another develop their art practice and careers.  The show features recent work made specially for this holiday show, and celebrates their reunion and creating a finale to Williams Mill’s 20th year anniversary celebrations.  Paintings by Marilyn Laugesen have arrived from the UK, and Ruth Boissoin from British Columbia.  The show also comprises wearable art from long time Georgetown resident Bonnie Glass, sculpture by Holly Atkinson, photography by Candace Slack and paintings by Ruth Boissoin, Wendy Cooper-Parkinson, Kim deBruyn, Nancy Farrell, Sherrill Girard and Marilyn Laugesen.  Many are smaller pieces that make a unique and precious gift for the holidays.  Join the artists and their collectors at a cheese and wine reception on Thursday December 8, 6-9pm.  Show continues thru December 31.  The gallery and gift shop are open extended hours in December, Tuesday-Sunday 12noon-5pm.  see www.williamsmill.com for details.
