Milford TV Art Show Jun-Aug 2021 – Good Ole Summertime

We are back to a fully live hung-on-the-walls show! Hurrah!

Beautiful summertime is celebrated at the Milford TV Station!

Every two months the Blackstone Valley Art Association rotates the art show at the Milford TV Station. The drop-off for the upcoming June-August 2020 show on the theme of “Good Ole Summertime” is the week of June 7th to June 11th 2021.

Drop-Off
Monday June 7th to Friday June 11th, 2021
Milford TV Station
138 South Main Street
Milford, MA 01757

You can bring in up to five pieces. All members in good standing can participate in this show for free. Please make sure the art is wired for hanging. Label the back with your name, the artwork title, and the price. You don’t need to use the online form for this show – Milford TV takes care of the labels for us.

Please call Liz Harkins, the Executive Director, to arrange a specific time to drop off your work. That way she can make sure someone is there to take it in.

C. 508-333-9207 W. 508-488-6445

Public Reception
Wednesday, June 30th, 2021
6-8pm
THIS IS IN PERSON! IN PERSON AT MILFORD TV! Note that there will be NO FOOD OR DRINK at this reception, and normal mask requirements are in place. We are still easing into in-person activities for now.

Also note THIS IS WEDNESDAY. Milford TV said that Wednesdays are easier for their schedule now.

Pickup will be during the drop-off period for the next show, which will be for the September-October period. It’ll probably be the middle of August. We’ll let you know when we plan that next step.

Ask with any questions! Share the news!
