The 84th Regional Exhibition of Art & Craft is one of the oldest juried exhibitions in New England. This annual summer tradition at the Fitchburg Art Museum strives to discover, encourage, and celebrate the artists and crafters of our region. The Regional Exhibition provides artists in our community with a museum environment to exhibit their artwork and opportunities to connect with fellow artists, patrons, and enthusiasts.
FAM is thrilled to announce Aynel David Guerra as this year’s juror. David is the Director and Founder of A R E A, a multi-format and interdisciplinary gallery in SoWa that welcomes creatives of diverse social and cultural backgrounds. Among other collaborative projects in Greater Boston, Guerra has organized exhibitions at Abigail Ogilvy Gallery, the Boston Center for the Arts, Villa Victoria Center for the Arts (VVCA), MIT Hacking Arts, and The Yard.
