Canton, MA – This year’s Arts Festival was held May 19th at the Canton Campus, 10:00am to 5:00pm. The weather cooperated, there was live music in the Open Juried Show Tent, the steamroller printmaking demonstration and the gourmet food trucks were a big hit. The YMCA provided a giant inflatable obstacle course for the kids, and youngsters had a great time in the Kid’s Activity Tent. Visitors came from near and far to shop at twenty five crafters and artisan’s tables, take a chance on great raffle items, and of course, enjoy the art exhibits displayed throughout the building. Bridgewater Credit Union was once again Masterpiece Sponsor. Also funded in part by grants from Canton, Avon, Milton, and Randolph Cultural Councils. Proceeds to benefit the Visual Arts Department.

The spotlight of the Arts Festival was on three juried art shows, each with prizes, awards, and ribbons: the Open Juried Art Show a  giant tent; the Massasoit Students Juried Show in the Akillian Gallery; and the Regional High School Juried Art Show 4th floor art studios. Here are the results:
