83RD REGIONAL EXHIBITION OF ART & CRAFT
June 22 – September 2, 2018
The 83rd 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 our artist community a museum environment to exhibit their artwork and opportunities to connect with fellow artists, patrons, and enthusiasts.
FAM is thrilled to announce that this year’s juror is Francine Weiss, the Senior Curator at the Newport Art Museum (Newport, RI). Prior to NAM, she served as Curator at the Photographic Resource Center in Boston and Editor for Loupe journal. Weiss received her Bachelor of Arts degree from Wellesley College and her Doctorate from Boston University.
On June 22, 6-8pm, come celebrate the opening of four new exhibitions, including the 83rd Regional Exhibition of Art and Craft! The event is FREE to the public. Guests are welcome to enjoy light refreshments and a cash bar.
