    The Barn Studio of Art

    by asturnut Updated Apr 4, 2011
    A wetlands painting by Pat Witt

    Pat Witt is the matron of the blossoming arts community in Millville. She is the original advocate for the arts in the area. She founded her Barn Studio of Art on her beautiful wooded property on the outskirts of Millville in 1962. Pat is approaching 80 now (although her free spirit keeps her looking like a woman in her 60's) but she still teaches. Children who have been lucky enough to have her as a teacher are likely to be greatly influenced not only in the arts, but in their outlook on life. Pat is a rare and beautiful person who is widely admired in Millville for her eccentric and beautiful presence. Our local PBS station did a wonderful one-hour special on Pat Witt. If you'd like to learn more about her, you can actually order the video on-line from PBS network affiliate NJN.

    If you or your children will be in town for an extended stay would like an opportunity to study art with Pat, please contact her to explore your opportunities for study.

    Lots of local events

    by asturnut Updated Jan 27, 2005
    Children's Halloween costume parade in Millville

    There is always something going on in the area. Most events aren't widely publicized though. So, if you want to find out what's going on, you should look for copies of the various free community papers. The two best ones are the "Down Jersey Magazine" which is printed seasonally, 4 times a year; the second is the Cumberland Reminder, which is mostly classifieds, but also has community calendars listed by township.

    You can obtain copies of these local freebies in public places and foyers of mom and pop shops, waiting rooms, etc.

    For example, the photo illustrates one of Millville's children's events in October. Every year we have a free Halloween party in the park with hay rides, costume parades and prizes, pumpkin decorating and a show.

    The South Jersey Pumpkin Show

    by asturnut Updated Jan 17, 2005

    Large pumpkins

    Every year, mid-October, Millville hosts the South Jersey Pumpkin show at the Cumberland County Fairgrounds. If you happen to be in the area during that time and you have children, you may enjoy a little slice of life by enjoying this local yokel activity. Agriculture is a big part of our economy in Cumberland County. Every year my daughter is impressed by the HUMUNGOUS pumpkins on display. Admission is $2 general admission and $1 for senior citizens. This outdoor event features games, crafts, food, etc and pumpkins of course!
