This Uxbridge gallery is supported in part by BVAA member dues, the Massachusetts Cultural Council, and by ValleyCAST. The space use is kindly donated to us by ValleyCast, the community outreach department of Open Sky Community Services. Open Sky uses this space for special-needs client activities during daytime weekdays. They allow the BVAA use of the space – and its gallery walls – on evenings and weekends. We actively support their inclusive mission. All are welcome to all of our events and activities!
2 thoughts to “Welcome to the BVAA”
I have a painting that says “Stanley after C. Russell” it is the “cookes troubles” 30×24.
My Grandmother purchased it at an auction approx 1952 for 3k.
I also have from the same auction an A. Wellington Smith 24×36.
I have no idea if they are worth anything. Can anybody help Me?
“Stanley” is far too vague a name for me to research. You need to take that to a professional art auction house for them to figure out who “Stanley” might be.
On A. Wellington Smith, he is easily found with a Google search. Here are some listings for his paintings.
