October Meeting

Join us on Thursday, October 21 for a presentation with our member Roger Duffy. The event is free and open to the public. Roger is an award-winning artist in graphics, pen & ink, and pencil. His drawings depict the Bible with pen & ink illustrated with words while serving as a testament to the originality of his own hand.

Monthly meetings are held at the St. Francis Parish Hall, 12 Park Street, Belchertown, Massachusetts.

We are asking meeting attendees to wear a mask or face covering and maintain social distancing.

Doors open at 6:45pm with business meeting scheduled at 7:00pm followed by artist presentation.


On Saturday, November 27th from 1:00 – 3:00 pm, we will host our second annual 'Art Take Away' and this year we are joining in on the holiday festivities with The Belchertown Cultural Council Winter Lights. Once again we will be decorating the big pine tree in the center of the common decked out in lights, embellishing 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. Any donations can be brought to the October or November member meetings.

We are looking for a volunteer to chair our event this year and anyone interested in serving can contact Denise Fontaine-Pincince dcfontaine@yahoo.com with questions and to volunteer. Any amount of time you can provide will be appreciated!
