First Anniversary- PAPER A CALL FOR ART

2012 Fountain Street Fine Art’s 1st Anniversary Open Juried Show.
Artists are invited to submit original work for this exhibit, to be held in the FSFA Gallery, 59 Fountain Street, Framingham MA 01702. The theme for this exhibit, PAPER, comes from the traditional symbolic first anniversary gift. We are seeking work in any medium that is on, of or about PAPER, to celebrate our first year of operation.

James Welu, Director Emeritus of the Worcester Art Museum, (the second largest art museum in New England), will jury the show. Before stepping down in November, he had served as the Museum’s director since 1986. Welu, who trained as a painter and studio art teacher, is also an expert in 17th-century Dutch and Flemish art; he has curated many exhibitions throughout his career.
