The 80th Regional Exhibition of Art & Craft

80th Logo Web copy.jpg

The 80th Regional Exhibition of Art & Craft, also known simply as The Regional Show, is one of the oldest juried exhibitions of its kind in New England. This annual, summer tradition at the Fitchburg Art Museum strives to discover, encourage, and recognize the talents of artists and crafters from our region (defined as those communities within approximately 30 miles of Fitchburg). The Regional Show provides a professional context for our region’s artists to share their work, network, with their peers, and connect with artists and arts enthusiasts in neighboring communities.
