“Milford Through Art” is currently being featured at the Mispillion Art League. Gallery reception will be September 9, from 5pm to 8pm. The show features vintage historic as well as contemporary paintings of Milford, and will be on display until October 1. The gallery is within walking distance of the Mural Project and the Milford Museum.

Milford is becoming an art destination. New galleries, studios, and classes are shaping our identity as “River Town, Art Town, Home Town.” The Mural Project downtown on SE Front Street is getting closer to completion each day. These murals represent Milford history, and were created by local artists.

Anyone who has visited New Hope, Pennsylvania, Stowe, Vermont or the Torpedo Factory in Alexandria, Virginia can tell you what fun it is to visit a town that has art at its heart. It’s good for all of us, whether resident or visitor.

Fall classes at MAL start soon. First is a children’s class, “Painting in Acrylics,” with Stephen Cannon. Two different sessions, one for grades 1-3, and one for grades 4-6, will be taught back-to-back on four consecutive Tuesdays from 4-5p.m. and 5:15-6:15p.m., respectively. The first class will be held on September 6. Participants must register by September 1.

The Gallery is open Wed-Sat at 10 a.m. (302) 430-7646. Contact April Abel at aprilabel7@comcast.net.
