Art At the Mill showcases the contemporary metal sculpture of Jeff Rutledge along with colorful contemporary prints created by former Greenville resident Molly Mote through July 21. Sculptor Jeff Rutledge began his formal training at Wright State University, graduating Magna Cum Laude in 1975, and earned his MFA from the University of Cincinnati. The Dayton resident says he enjoys working in steel because of its plasticity and enduring nature. Molly Mote has been immersed in art throughout her entire life; she began giving art lessons when she was only 15 years old, and is currently an elementary art teacher in Indianapolis where she resides. Molly attended the Chicago Art Institute, then moved on to Herron School of Art where she earned her degree in printmaking. Art At the Mill received funding from the Ami McClurkin Community Fund, held by the HOPE Foundation of Darke County, and is also supported by Darke County Endowment for the Arts. The art exhibit is on view during regular Mill store hours, 11 a.m. till 5 p.m. daily. Historic Bear's Mill is operated by Friends of Bear's Mill, a non-profit organization, and is located at 6450 Arcanum-Bear's Mill Road about 5 miles east of Greenville.
