Call & Response

This February Quabbin Art Association hosted a Call & Response event for our members. It was another way for us to stay connected and for participants to get to know another member of our association. We were challenged to respond to each piece of art that our partners completed. Work included all kinds of media. Check out some of the members amazing work on Facebook.

Art Meets Poetry 2019

Quabbin Art Association celebrated National Poetry Month & ArtWeek 2019 with a contest. Six pieces of fine art, donated by member artists of the Quabbin Art Association, were on display throughout the month of April at the Clapp Memorial Library. Poets and writers were invited to view the artwork and compose a poem in response to a selected piece of art.

The following artists donated artwork for this event: Sandra Burke, collage; Susan Dion, watercolor pencils; Denise Fontaine-Pincince, assemblage; Bev Phaneuf, oil; Audrey Safford, relief sculpture, and Susan Shea, zentangle.

Each artist selected a winning poem, and winning poets were awarded their prize artwork at Belchertown High School’s Coffee House event on Friday, May 3.

National Poetry Month, inaugurated by the Academy of American Poets in 1996, is the largest literary celebration in the world.

ArtWeek is a state-wide festival featuring hundreds of unique and creative experiences that are hands-on, interactive or offer behind-the-scenes access to artists or the creative process.
