"The Braintree Art Association is dedicated to promoting and celebrating the visual arts."
We were founded in 1960 by a small group of talented and dedicated art enthusiasts. The Braintree Art Association has been a constant presence in the community providing support and inspiration to an ever-growing membership. There are currently over one hundred members from Braintree and the surrounding communities. We have a full schedule that provides opportunities for all to participate. Our monthly newsletter keeps members updated.
Our activities include:
•Monthly member meetings at the Thayer Public Library with a demonstration by a prominent local artist. •A Spring Art Show at the Thayer Academy Art Gallery •A Fall Art Show at the Thayer Public Library •“Artist of the Month” recognition at the Thayer Public Library •An opportunity to display your work in the lobby of Braintree Town Hall •Participation in the “Arts Affair on the Boardwalk” Marina Bay •Annual “art sale” at the Town Hall in conjunction with the Braintree Farmers Market •Group excursions to art exhibits and venues
• A scholarship award to a Braintree High School senior who is pursuing an education in the arts
In the near future we hope to have a permanent “home” where we will have classes, workshops and paint-ins. We welcome new members. Our demos at the Thayer Public Library on the third Thursday of the month are open to the public and offer a great opportunity to get acquainted.
