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. The 86th Regional Exhibition is a testament to the vitality and importance of our immediate artist community. This year’s show includes 79 artists from 44 towns. The First Prize winner of the 86th Regional Exhibition will receive a solo exhibition in the summer of 2023, alongside the 87th Regional Exhibition.


FAM extends a warm thank you to this year’s juror, Jameson Johnson, the founder and editor-in-chief of Boston Art Review and the communications and development manager at the MIT List Visual Arts Center. We would also like to express our gratitude to the artists and crafters who continue to make this FAM tradition one of the highlights of our year.
