The Art Factory is proud to work with many of our artists… These artists have generously donated their time and talents to create a unique, one-of-a-kind, hand-made “TROUT” in the genre they work in. We are expecting some very interesting and exciting results!
100% of the sale of these trout will be donated directly to the DHC to help them continue their great work!
On Saturday, 10/10/20 from 1-4:00, the Art Factory will be unveiling the artists renditions. Please stop in and see the fantastic, creative talents of these artists! Then go home and bid on one or more of these impressive pieces!
Each trout will be individually listed on our on-line auction at TheArtFactoryofWhiteMills.com. The auction will run from 10/10/20 through 10/31/20. Winners will be notified by e-mail on 11/01/20.

Happy 3rd Anniversary to The Art Factory of White Mills!
On August 20, 2016 we opened the doors to The Art Factory of White Mills for the first time. We had 22 local artists showcasing their art. Presently, we represent over 70 local artists with over 1,000 pieces of art. We believe that we are one of the largest art galleries in NEPA!
When someone enters the gallery for the first time, we can always tell… Their mouth opens wide and they mouth, “WOW!” “I had no idea!” We constantly hear; “I’ve been meaning to stop in”, “I heard your ad on the radio”, “I didn’t think the building was this large”, “What a selection”, “Your prices are so reasonable”, etc.
We are very grateful to all of you that have entered our doors! The Art Factory of White Mills occupies over 4,000 square feet. We offer art in every media. We believe that the prices are reasonable. In fact, we request that artists provide us with work that is less expensive in addition to higher-end pieces. We have something for everyone and The Art Factory of White Mills is well-worth investigating! From hand-made, one-of-a-kind, unique artwork, how can you possibly go wrong?
The Art Factory of White Mills offers classes and workshops. We host “Meet & Greets” for our featured artists. Throughout the year, artists offer free demos of their art style and classes that they offer. We strive to be a “Community Art Center”, “A place where talent & appreciation meet!”
We continue to learn, grow, expand, and change. New art arrives daily. We invite you to come in and browse. We encourage you to shop with us! We look forward to many more years at The Art Factory of White Mills!
We hope to see you soon!

Wally Life show!
On Saturday, 01/19 from 1:00-3:00 (we cut the event short so that everyone could beat the storm and arrive home safely), The Art Factory of White Mills hosted our 4th “High School Emerging Artists Showcase”. As a result of the impending storm, turnout was weaker than we would have liked, however, the students did not disappoint! This year’s artwork was phenomenal!!!
Jerry and I were relieved to not have to act as judges… It was that challenging! The artists that we represent in The Art Factory were our judges. Trust me, that was no easy task! Thank you to all of our artists that did attend and helped to support these young artists! Thank you Bill Cohen-photographer, for your input as well 🙂
A really huge shout out to art teachers; Kathy Higgins, Honesdale High School, and Justin Hayden, Western Wayne High School. Your schools are extremely lucky to have you on staff! Your guidance and encouragement to these art students do not go unnoticed or unappreciated. The love and respect these students have for you are so well deserved! Kudos!
Thank you to the families that came out to support their children. It means a lot to your children and to us as well!
Thank you to the Wayne Independent Newspaper for the phone interview.
Lastly, thank you to Connor Simon and Wally Life for videotaping this event and interviewing the emerging artists! We look forward to the segment airing sometime in mid-February. We will post the segment on this website and Facebook when we can.
It’s not too late to view all of this wonderful artwork. We will have all of the participants work on display through Saturday, 01/26. We are open daily from 10:00-5:00 (except today, as we are still shoveling out!). First, second, and third place winners will have the option of leaving their work on display inside the gallery for the next 6 months! Yahoo!!!

Two self-portraits titled “Jet Fuel” and “Made of Dust” and a color pencil piece of actor Luke Evans won Western Wayne High School art students Melanie Roberts and Shailyn Pugh first and second place respectively at the 4th High School Emerging Artists Showcase at The Art Factory of White Mills on Saturday, Jan. 19.
Students from local schools participated. Western Wayne had a number of high school students submit pieces including: Maya Black, Miriam Sheehan, Melanie Roberts, Melody Gershey, Dayla Jones, Kat Moore, Rachel Butler, Shailyn Pugh, Abby Burke, and Nina Nerys.
Junior Shailyn Pugh won the second-place prize of $75. gift card to Michael’s.
She felt proud of her color pencil portrait of actor Luke Evans who, among many other roles, recently played Gaston in the newest Beauty and the Beast film. Shailyn enjoys creating portraits and other realistic pieces. She thinks the one she did of Evans is one of her best. I used to be afraid of blending colors,” Shailyn explained. “But for this piece, I think the colors I needed were there in the end.”
The prize money will help Shailyn purchase watercolor paper and new paint. She would like to practice more painting and explained that she loves the challenge involved in creating good quality artwork. “When I’m finished with a piece, I like to see what I created and usually I can see myself getting better,” Shailyn said.
Her classmate senior Melanie Roberts came in first at the showcase for her self-portraits, “Jet Fuel” and “Made of Dust.” Melanie explained how she enjoys creating symbolic self-portraits that display qualities about her. “Jet Fuel,” created with half colored pencil and half pen and ink, has a background of half water with her head under it.
“A lot of my pictures show emotion,” Melaine said. Daydreaming and wonderment is represented in Melanie’s other portrait in the showcase called “Made of Dust,” created with colored pencil, charcoal, and some acrylic. She explained how there are planets and starts around her head in the picture which represents how her head is sometimes in the clouds.
Next year, Melanie wishes to start college in the spring and study art. In the meantime, she plans to use the prize of $100. gift card to Michaels to buy more acrylic paint and pen and ink markers. “I like to show how I feel in my artwork,” Melanie explained. “It helps me to explain things because it is hard to talk about emotions.”

On 10/04 a group of friends, just a bunch of novices (honestly!) got together to paint rocks. The rocks will become part of the table decorations @”A Night for the Cure”.

The hope is that these rocks will be shared by everyone that picks one up and leaves it someplace else and then posts to that hashtag along with a photo…
Come to Woodloch on 10/21, beginning @5 pm for their annual “Tricky Tray” fund raiser for Breast Cancer. A fun night with awesome raffles and a super important cause! Help kick cancer…
The Art Factory of White Mills Celebrates its 2nd Anniversary!
