Welcome to the Eclipse Mill!

The Eclipse Mill live/work community consists of a wide range of artists and artisans, currently including painters, writers, potters, fiber artists, composers, educators, a bookseller, a conservator, a light designer, an art dealer and a publishing house. The building is much more than a renovated textile mill with studio space. It is a vital group of creative individuals working independently and collectively to make a live/work space that fits the needs of all. The condo association is self-governed, with various committees and a board to govern the day to day running of the building. Each floor has its own neighborhood culture, with dinners and coffees a frequent result. The first floor has a large shared gallery where exhibits and openings contribute to the artistic engagement of the region.
