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, April 28th, 2018 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.
Deadline to submit your titles and sizes via the online form is Monday, April 22nd. 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 for the show will be Friday, April 27th 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.
Participating artists get free entry to enjoy the show! Let us know if you’re interested in attending the music!
Pick-up will be Sunday morning from 8-10am. If you can’t make that, email us to make other arrangements.
The music being performed will be:
Dvorak: Symphony No. 9 “The New World”
Southard: An Appalachian Trail Symphony, World Premiere
Claflin Hill’s notes:
As we all know, the best part of a tour is “coming home!” We complete this whirlwind Coming of Age season by celebrating our own country – both from the perspective of a composer of the “Old World” inspired on his first visit to American in the 1890s to pen his Ninth Symphony “The New World” – evoking the majesty, the beauty, the optimism and the possibilities in the American personality — accompanied by the “Dean” of American composers—Aaron Copland and his rambunctious and good humored “Rodeo.” Vermont composer Keane Southard’s “An Appalachian Trail Symphony” –recently completed after his hike through New England on the Trail pays homage to the beauty of our own New England.
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 an Americana theme then that might be a perfect one to choose!
Use the BVAA Online Submission Form to submit for this show.
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!

To get to to Milford Town Hall, 52 Main Street from Millbury take 140 S for around 10 miles. Take a slight left on West Street, which becomes Exchange Street. Turn left onto Main Street/MA-16 for about 2 1/2 miles. It’s a tall white steepled building very hard to miss.
There are parking lots on either side of the building as well as street parking.
You may enter by the side entrance where the handicapped ramp is, go in via the ramp and basement entrance and use the elevator to go to the second floor.
