The Regional Exhibition of Art & Craft is one of the longest-running juried exhibitions in New England, and we are excited to continue the tradition in 2022! This annual exhibition at the Fitchburg Art Museum strives to spotlight and celebrate the artists and crafters of our region by providing a museum environment for their artwork and connecting them with fellow artists, patrons, and enthusiasts. 
 Just like last year, we’re doing our registration and jurying process online. Artists will pay the registration fee and submit images of their work online, but as always, the exhibition of the selected artworks will still be in person at the Fitchburg Art Museum! The 86th Regional Exhibition of Art & Craft will be on view in the FAM galleries from June 24–September 4, 2022As the First Prize winner of last year’s Regional Exhibition, Bridie Wolejko will also have her solo exhibition, Hypnagogia: Bridie Wolejko’s Mixed Media Fantasies, on view from June 24–September 4, 2022.

Eligibility & Jurying

The Regional Exhibition is open to all artists and crafters working in any medium who live or work within 30 miles of Fitchburg, MA. Artists may submit up to 2 artworks that have been created within the last two years. An outside juror will select the work to be featured in the exhibition. We are thrilled to announce that this year’s juror is Jameson Johnson, a writer, curator, and community organizer based in Boston.
