Not in the market for a painting or a print this year?     Come down anyway! 

It's always a fun day out on the common,
and it is interesting to look at the world through the eyes of these local artists!

There are also raffles, and live painting demonstrations! 

So, mark your calendars and come down and support the artists of the Norwood Art Association!      

The Norwood Art Association was established in 1978 and has been run by volunteer members since.   Their goal is to encourage and promote the arts, and to provide a community for artists to share and learn.   It is not just limited to the town of Norwood and in fact their membership includes many members from surrounding communities!    The annual dues are a mere $15 per year.    This membership includes admission to demonstrations by a different artists each month as well as sales and exhibits.  All are invited to attend these informative and fun events!     One does not have to be an artist to join... all you need is an interest!     The Norwood Art Association is committed to promoting art among the young and supports this by providing the school with a scholarship each year.
In fact the Scholarship Winner's art work will be on display at the Exhibit!

  1. I have been going to the Art in the Park for years. I find it fascinating not only to view the artwork but to engage the artists in discussions about their work or about 'how' they go about creating their masterpieces.

    "Winter on the Charles" will win a ribbon for sure.

    Thanks for highlighting this organization and their artists

  2. Hi Nancy. That is a great aspect of the show. I agree that "Winter on the Charles" should win a ribbon for sure. I hope you have a great day!
