BVAA Purpose

Since its inception in 1957, the Blackstone Valley Art Association has been dedicated to the advancement of the arts and preservation of the finest artistic traditions by means of exhibitions, classes, lectures, and other activities favorable to artistic expression, and to the development of friendly exchanges amongst artists and those interested in the arts


The BVAA is an organization which relies on dues, grants and corporate donations in order to cover expenses incurred in holding events and meetings. The number of events we will present depends on our income and budget.


We'll be meeting and holding shows at the Northbridge Senior Center, 20 Highland Street, Whitinsville on the third Tuesday of every month EXCEPT during the summer months. Please check our calendar for more information.  Board meeting venues will be announced. All meetings start at 7:00 pm unless indicated otherwise.

  2. 2.Proceed for 1.2 miles down Church St.  Look on the left (at least it will still be light) for a blue sign by the road stating Northbridge Senior Center on the left.

  3. 3.Turn left onto Highland Street and the large building on the right is the senior center.  Traffic flow is one direction starting on the left around the building.
