About Mills Pond Gallery
Smithtown Township Arts Council operates Mills Pond Gallery in an historic Greek Revival building built in 1838. There are five gallery rooms and the facility can display an average of 60 works of art.
Adaptation of Mills Pond House for public use has introduced modern mechanical systems to the structure without impairing its historic integrity. Gallery lighting and handicapped access have been designed to complement the original building. Notable among the circa 1838 Grecian details are the gold-veined marble mantelpieces, ornamental plater “centres” applied to the ceilings, and front and rear stoops supported by wooden Doric columns.
Mills Pond house preserves the locality’s name, but departs from tradition in other respects. Its high-style Grecian design is unusual on Long Island and the hand of an accomplished architect is nearly unique at this early date. Pollard’s influence is seen in the use of imported materials: Albany boards, Carolina yellow pine, English glass, Connecticut stone, and Santo Domingan mahogany. The silvered hardware, decorative plaster, and carpeting were bought in New York City shops. William Wickham Mills died in 1865. His home descended in the family until its gift to the Town of Smithtown in 1976. Today, it is preserved for use as an arts-related facility.

The Moth, an international art and literature magazine based in Ireland, announces a call for artists for The Moth Art Prize. It is awarded annually to a body of figurative or representational artwork. It is open to anyone (over 16) from anywhere in the world. Submit a portfolio of images of 5–10 2D artworks – to include figurative or representational paintings, drawings (including mixed media), and original prints.
Deadline: 31 Aug 2020
The Moth Art Prize consists of €1,000 plus a two-week stay at The Moth Retreat, which is situated along a beautiful country lane in Ireland. The Moth Retreat features a large studio/living area, kitchen/breakfast room downstairs, separate brush room, bedroom, and bathroom upstairs. The accommodation is warm and inviting and a keen eye has been kept on William Morris’s golden rule: ‘Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful.’
‘I’m over the moon about winning The Moth Art Prize. The Moth has always been brilliantly curated, with exquisite artwork and thoughtful writing throughout. And a couple of weeks in the countryside is exactly what my artist soul needs.’ Gregory Mortenson
‘I am so grateful to the folks at The Moth for awarding me this prize. I think getting out of New York for a bit will be healthy. It will be an amazing and much-needed time to regroup, reflect on my work and tinker with some new ideas.’ Bradley Wood
‘A lot of credit should go to The Moth, always wonderfully idiosyncratic and beautifully designed, for launching the prize and responding to figurative painting, largely ignored by the contemporary art scene. We have nothing like it in the UK.’ David Piddock
