BVAA Spectacular Spring Show 2018 at Amazing Things

The Blackstone Valley Art Association is sponsoring its annual BVAA Spectacular Spring Show – this is our sixtieth year! The show is open to all BVAA members. If you’re not yet a BVAA member, now’s the time to join us – this is an amazing gallery and opportunity!

March 30 to May 5, 2018

Amazing Things Gallery
160 Hollis Street
Framingham, MA 01702
Amazing Things Art Center Website

Entering the Show
The entry fee for the Spectacular Spring show, open to all styles of artwork, is $20/3 pieces. The theme is wide open. You can submit a portrait, landscape, still life, abstract, seascape, you name it. Your imagination is the limit. Because this show is judged, you cannot enter anything which has previously been submitted for a BVAA judged show. It’s fine to enter works which have been in non-judged BVAA shows.

All artwork must be family friendly. Any hanging artwork MUST BE properly wired for hanging. The gallery will not accept non-wired wall-hanging artwork. If you are new to preparing hanging artwork for shows, read our page on How to Mat and Frame Artwork. Please also check out our Show Terms and Conditions

IMPORTANT NOTE: The gallery’s commission is 35%. There will be no BVAA commission as a result. Please take that 35% into your pricing decisions.

To submit your entries use our BVAA Online Submission Form. The deadline to submit is midnight on Monday, March 26th, 2018. Work can be dropped off Wed during gallery hours; it must be dropped off by Thursday, March 28th, 2018 at 3pm. All work which is brought in will be hung (as long as it is properly wired and is family-friendly). When delivering artwork, bring it to the second floor of the gallery.

We will have a sign-in sheet. Please make sure you sign your art in so we can track what is in the gallery.

The show must be completely hung on Thursday by 6pm. We always love inventive assistance with our hangings! This is like Interior Design for the Creative Mind! We’d love to have you partake in the fun between 3pm and 6pm – please contact Pam at to reserve your spot!

This show awards cash prizes based on the number of entries received. The judge for this show is to be determined. The time will be either that Friday or the following Tue-Thu between 10am and 6pm.

Opening Reception
The opening reception for the show is:
Thursday, April 5, 2018, 6-8pm

There’ll be music, fun, and lively conversation! Bring a snack to share – just how creative can you get? Lisa might bring her ladybug-tomato-on-mozzarella! That is nice and springy!

Please invite family and friends – all are welcome!

Viewing Hours
Tuesday through Friday 12 noon to 6pm

Pick Up
Pick up for this show is:

TUESDAY 5/8 10-5:30 OR WEDNESDAY 5/9 10-5:30

If you aren’t able to make that, contact us for other arrangements. If you have not removed your artwork within two months, it becomes the property of Amazing Things. Note that we will have a sign-out sheet for the artwork, since this is an external-to-us gallery.

Address any questions via our BVAA Contact Information

Ask with any questions! We look forward to seeing your entries!
