The Somervell History Foundation presents its sixth annual “Art on the Paluxy” Art Show and Sale this Saturday, Nov. 9 from 7 to 9 p.m. at Barnard’s Mill and Art Museum.

As part of the foundation’s goal in supporting the arts, artist-in-residence Robert Summers will be joined by six other Texas artists. This unique event showcases a small, select group of local and regional artists.

The artists tare Tina Bohlman, Nancy Bozeman, Douglas Clark, Ron Hood, Sheri Jones and Gini Morelock-Bosco. Those attending can not only view art work, but also meet and talk with the artists.

The event is open to anyone who wishes to attend.  The event is free to foundation members. The admission fee to all others is $10 per person.  Wine and hors d’oeuvres will be served.

The Somervell History Foundation is a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization formed in 2000 by a group of interested citizens of Glen Rose.  The foundation’s primary focus in this community is its unique responsibility in preserving Barnard’s Mill and Art Museum, now owned and operated by the Somervell History Foundation.

Historic Barnard’s Mill, completed in 1860, was the first permanent structure in the area.  The mill has been on the State Register of Historical Places for over twenty five years and in 1982 was placed on the National Register of Historic Places.  In May 2010 Barnard’s Mill and Art Museum were designated by the Texas Historical Commission as a State Archeological Landmark.

In September 2010 the mill received the prestigious Colonial Lady Historical Mark from the Texas State Colonial Dames 17th Century.
