Uxbridge features some of the most beautiful scenery in the region. Did you know that within a 5 minute walk of our Uxbridge Art Gallery there is a train station, several old churches, two historical homes, a waterfall, and several old stone buildings?
We have created a day of creativity, art, and fun to explore all that is delightful about Uxbridge!
This event is FREE and open to the public! All are welcome!
Saturday, May 12th, 2018
9am – 3pm
BVAA Alternatives Uxbridge Community Gallery
5 South Main Street
Uxbridge, MA 01569
In the spirit of Urban Sketchers, we will sketch Uxbridge!
If you’d like to stay close, you can walk from the gallery to explore the nearby sights. Not enough? Then it’s just a 5 minute drive to the stone arch bridge, red barn, and canal views at River Bend Farm. Or for a little elevation, climb Goat Hill.
This sketch walk will be led by talented artist Dennis Smith. We will meet at the BVAA Alternatives Uxbridge Community Art Gallery at 5 South Main at 9am to get acquainted. Ten minutes after the meet time, we will head off as a group or split up and head to one or more locations.
Bring your sketchbook or pad, pens, pencils, watercolors or whatever your favorite medium and have at it. For inspiration and to get an idea of what others have done, visit Urban Sketchers website at http://www.urbansketchers.org or their Boston group at https://www.facebook.com/urbansketchersboston
At noon, we will meet back at the art gallery to share our experiences and capture the traditional photo of our group and our works – and perhaps a pizza.
We’ll also have a showcase of local art on hand for visitors to explore. From notecards to prints to original paintings, we’ll delight in the fantastic beauty which is Uxbridge.
There is a TON of free parking immediately next to this building. It is fully and easily handicapped accessible.
