Our new galleries open with this first exhibition. Join us for a daytime event and get the first look.

Juror Nancy Burns, Associate Curator of Prints, Drawings, and Photographs at the Worcester Art Museum, selected 58 works for inclusion, all saluting the many possibilities of paper.

Artist members, annual supporters and campaign donors are invited to be the first through the doors with a morning champagne reception (if you are not sure of your status, please give us a call).

This exhibition is the “soft” opening of the new facility; some minor construction may still be ongoing.

Music courtesy of our new neighbors, WICN. Parking is available at the Worcester Public Library, the Federal Plaza Garage, Worcester Common Garage, and Pearl-Elm Garage.

This exhibition is supported in part by a grant from the Worcester Arts Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency. We thank the Printers Building Trust and Davis Publications for our new home.
