The Amherst Historical Society presents the 4th Annual Juried Art Show at the Simeon Strong House Sept. 30 – Dec. 11, 2016. We invite artists to submit original works to its fourth annual juried art show.
Moving Day is our theme this year and we ask artists to present their own visual representation of what it means to move in, move out or move on. All modes of visual art are encouraged, including but not limited to paintings, drawings, photography, textiles and sculptures, needlework, collage, glass, and ceramics.
