New Mispillion Art League Gallery

The Mispillion Art League finally has it own permanent gallery! On December 1st, the League signed a lease for gallery and class room space at 127 NW Front Street—in the recently rehabilitated Governor Tharp Building. The building is located at the corner of NW Front and Church Streets. There is ample off-street parking behind the building. (The lot is accessed from Church Street which is one-way going south.)

The public opening of the new gallery will be this Friday during the Downtown Holiday Stroll organized by Downtown Milford Incorporated. From 5 to 8 PM on Friday downtown merchants on Walnut and Front Streets are staying open late to welcome holiday shoppers. Santa’s House will be open for the kids. There will be Horse Drawn Wagon Rides throughout the night sponsored by Dave Wilson of Wilson's Auction. Through out the evening the will be performances by Milford's Christmas Carol Band, Second Street Players Carolers, the First Presbyterian Church, Jesus Love Temple, Hand Bell Ringers, Zwaanendael Dance Academy and Delaware Music School.

So don’t forget to visit NW Front Street for the Mispillion Art League’s Gallery opening, plus stop by at the LadyBug Shop (131 NW Front in the Tharp Building) and the Victorian Lady Tearoom (112 NW Front, the Marshall Building). There will also be live Christmas Jazz by guitarist Phil Henry throughout the evening at the Governor Tharp building.
