Housatonic Art League Summer Show 2011 at Dewey Hall

Sheffield, MA - I saw a sign for a FREE Art Show so I stopped in.

The art show is in Dewey Memorial Hall 91 Main Street (Rte. 7) Sheffield, MA. The juried show is open from June 30 - July 31, 2011. Hours are Daily 10am - 5pm, Fridays open until 6pm, Sundays 1pm - 5pm. There is also a Member show August 4 - September 5.

These are Free shows open to the public.

A note about the hall. It was built in 1887 to honor Orville Dewey who was born in Sheffield in 1794. He was a Unitarian Minister who preached in Boston, New Bedford, and New York. When he retired to his farm in Sheffield he founded the Sheffield Friendly Union Library Association. When he died, his family raised $10,000 to build the hall in his honor.
