ART Take-Away

On Saturday, December 5th from 1–3 p.m., we will host an ‘ART Take-Away’ exhibit on the Belchertown Common. Imagine the big pine tree in the center of the common decked out in lights, embellished with donations of art supplies, greeting cards, handmade ornaments, fine art, fine art prints, photography--anything art related. This is an opportunity for QAA to give during this season of giving and to fulfill an important part of our mission which is to provide opportunity for local artists and to promote community interest in the visual arts. So, how can you participate?

Please pre-package donated item(s) in a quart or gallon size baggie. Feel free to include your business card. Then, drop off your art-related donation(s) to 40 South Main Street (white house with red shutters) in Belchertown. You will find a labeled basket on the front porch. The bags will be clipped to the pine tree so that people can easily see what is inside. Prior to the event, QAA will have asked the community for donations, too. Finally, we ask for your help on December 5th. QAA volunteers are needed between 11:30 am to 3:30 p.m. Please email Denise Fontaine-Pincince (dcfontaine@yahoo.com) with questions and to volunteer. Any amount of time you can provide will be appreciated!

Art Chat

Our next Zoom Art Chat is scheduled for Thursday, December 17th at 7:00pm. Please email Denise Fontaine-Pincince (dcfontaine@yahoo.com) and she will forward the link. This is our way of helping to inspire your personal art, or community involvement in the arts and help keep us connected.
