BVAA 32nd Annual Spring Show – April 1990

The 32nd Annual Art Festival of the Blackstone Valley Art Association was held in April 1990 at the Blackstone-Millville Regional Junior – Senior High School in Blackstone. The jurist was Lou Bonamarte.

This show featured a number of named awards rather than first / second / third. Also, I’ll note that there were NO PHOTOGRAPHS in these winners, meaning that there might have been no photographs at all in the show. The first time I’m finding any record of photography in a BVAA show is in 1992.
