Celebrate Small Shop Saturday!
Every year, on the first Saturday after Thanksgiving, the world celebrates Small Shop Saturday. This wonderful event celebrates the local stores, artisans, authors, and other individuals which make our local areas so special. In 2018, Small Shop Saturday falls on Saturday, November 24th.
Come on out to Uxbridge to celebrate the many small shops we have in town!
Blackstone Valley Art Association Gallery
The BVAA gallery, at 5 South Main Street, will be open from 10am to 3pm! We currently are hosting our annual community Tapestry art show. There are photographs, watercolors, acrylic paintings, oil paintings, sculptures, origami, prints, cards, books, jewelry, and much, much more! All are welcome. Come on by and see what your community has created!
Our Saturdays at the gallery include an open paint session where all styles of art are warmly welcome. Whether you’re 12 or 102, whether you’re a new beginner or a seasoned artist, we would love to have you. It’s completely free to participate in the open paint. You can bring your own paints or we’ll have watercolors and brushes to share.
There is a TON of free parking immediately next to this building. It is fully and easily handicapped accessible.
Ask with any questions – we’d love to have you join us!
