To celebrate the 150th Anniversary, the Old Schwamb Mill hosts “Schwamb Mill Artistry and Craftsmanship Today” a show featuring work by 15 artists with studios in the Theodore Schwamb Company building, Arlington, Mass. Among them Rick Berry and my studio neighbors, Martha Wakefield, Wendy Young and The Mill, one of Arlington’s hidden historic gems, is an 1864 picture frame factory and living history museum. It is the country’s only manufacturer of hand-turned museum quality oval frames. The Mill is a worthy destination in its own right, with its rich industrial history, its bucolic setting on Mill Brook and, in particular, its original and still-used 19th-century machinery.
It is a very interesting building, with lots of wood frames. It is situated just next to the bike path in Arlington Heights. When you enter the building, the smell of the wood carries you into a different world. See the directions here.
