    Winter Magic Dropoff

    6-8pm Milford TV Station 138 South Main Street Milford, MA http://www.milfordtv.net/ Every two months we rotate the art show at the Milford TV Station. We arrange our drop-offs on the last Thursday of the month preceding the show. THIS IS THE EXCEPTION! To avoid the holiday insanity, we push the December drop-off to the first week of January. Therefore, the drop-off for the upcoming January-February 2019 show on the theme of “Winter Magic” is Thursday, January 3rd, 2019 from 6-8pm. “Winter Magic” is anything at all having to do with winter. Explore the possibilities! Details: http://bvaa.org/2018/10/24/milford-tv-art-show-jan-feb-2019-winter-magic/

Our January 2019 monthly meeting will be held on Tuesday, January 15th from 6:30-9pm. http://bvaa.org/2019/01/07/january-2019-monthly-meeting-photography-in-series/
