Get ready for the expanded 2021 edition of the Small Stones Festival of the Arts, a collaboration of Apple Tree Arts, the Worcester County Camera Club, the Blackstone Valley Arts Association, the Shakespeare Club of Grafton and Claflin Hill Symphony Orchestra. The festival will include a juried exhibition of photography and painting, a major musical performances event arranged by Apple Tree Arts and Claflin Hill Symphony Orchestra, and a new Literary Track. Art will also be available for purchase on site at the exhibition. Admission is free to the general public.
This year’s festival will be held from October 15th to the 24th, now in three locations including the Great Hall at Apple Tree Arts, the Grafton Public Library, and the Congregational Church of Grafton.
The Art Call is now complete, having opened August 15th, and this year we added two major fundraisers: an Art Auction in September and a new fun event called Gazebo-Palooza, both of which were highly successful in meeting our goals.
