    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/

    Celebrating Uxbridge

    10am - 3pm 5 South Main Street Uxbridge, MA 01569 Uxbridge, MA was settled way back in 1662. Did you know it was once part of Mendon? Uxbridge is famous for providing rights to the very first colonial woman voter, Lydia Taft! And a feisty Uxbridge woman, Deborah Sampson, posed as a man to fight in the American Revolution! Celebrate that spirit of all that makes Uxbridge amazing on Saturday, June 1st, 2019. We’re turning downtown Uxbridge into a festival of music, artwork, gifts, laughter, and much, much more. There’ll be a DJ, live paintings, origami, and adventure! Local authors will be signing books! All ages welcome, and it’s free!

If you have a preferred medium feel free to bring along your own paints, pastels, pencils, or camera. We will tackle the creative challenges with whatever we like to work with.
