The 4th of July Arts Festival is a tradition we missed the last two years. We are so pleased it has been reinstated, this will be the 52nd 4th of July Arts Festival Show held in Chelmsford. Our Adult Show is one of the most anticipated and best attended art events in the area, plus each year our Student exhibit is always so enjoyable. For the festival to be successful it needs YOU, the Artists! The show is open to Members, Non-Members, and Students, and there is a fee for submitting your art.
This presentation of the Chelmsford Art Society is supported in part by a grant from the Chelmsford Cultural Council, local agency which is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.
