Claflin Hill Holiday Pops Art & Music – Dec 9 2017

The BVAA, in conjunction with the Claflin Hill Symphony Orchestra, is offering a fun night of art and music! The orchestra provides the music while the BVAA provides the art!

Milford Town Hall
52 Main Street
Milford, MA 01757

On Saturday, December 9th, 2017 from 7:30-10:00pm the Claflin Hill Symphony Orchestra will be performing a show. The BVAA will have art up for patrons to enjoy before the show and during intermission. This is an art-loving audience and we see good sales at these shows.

Submissions
Deadline to submit your titles and sizes via the online form is Monday, December 4th. This gives us time to determine how many panels will be needed. There’s no fee to participate and the show is open to all BVAA members. Anne will then respond back to everyone with a copy of the labels to proof and approve. If you don’t submit your information by Monday night you may still be able to participate, but your labels might not be proofed. This show is displayed on panels so works submitted need to be less than 36″ wide in order to fit on a panel. Any sales will include a 20% BVAA commission. Full BVAA terms: BVAA Show Terms and Conditions.

Drop-Off
Drop-Off for the show will be Friday, December 8th from 4-6pm. Everything will be set up Friday night so it’s ready to go for Saturday. If you can’t make it on Friday, you can drop off Thursday during their open hours. Just put the artwork up in the performance hall. We’ve never had any issue with items being left there.

Public Viewing
IMPORTANT NOTE!! The Holiday Pops sells out EVERY YEAR so we do not get free tickets to this one. If you want to attend, make sure you buy your tickets early!

Pick-Up
Pick-up will be Sunday morning from 8-10am. If you can’t make that, email us to make other arrangements.

Theme
The music being performed will be:

Timeless Classics!

Claflin Hill’s notes:

Let us make your spirits merry and bright as the Grand Ballroom is transformed into a magical place for all ages! Join us for everyone’s favorite holiday tradition featuring timeless classics like “Sleigh Ride,” “Stille Nacht,” a holiday sing-along and a visit from jolly ol’ St. Nick! Let’s ring in the Holidays together! The Greater Milford Community Chorus, under the direction of Daniel Zabinski, join CHSO for their third year!

We should aim to bring the best art in our libraries, to match the high quality of the performance. That being said, if you have two great pieces and one features a holiday theme then that might be a perfect one to choose!

Use the BVAA Online Submission Form to submit for this show.

Volunteers Needed
The BVAA is run by volunteers – please lend a hand! We need volunteers for the following activities:
* Bringing the art panels from Pam’s house to the show (they are 30″ X 84″ in size)
* Hang the show from 5-6 on Friday
* Take it down at 8:30 on Sunday
* Bringing the art panels back to Pam’s house

Let us know on your submission form how you’re able to help out. There is a 20% commission on sales – this commission is forgiven for those who help out!
