  • Entries should be clearly labeled and signed with the title and artist's name.
  • Art works should measure at most approximately 3 ft by 3 ft. Anything larger may not be able to be displayed due to space constraints. 
  • Pieces should be dropped off in the meeting room on Saturday, August 20th. 
  • The show goes from Tuesday, August 23rd to Saturday, August 27th. A reception will be planned during that time; date to be determined. The art show will be available during the hours the library is open. 
  • Registration closes on Sunday, July 31st. 

The Mattapoisett Sustainability Partnership is hosting this show in an effort to bring awareness to recycling and waste issues. The Partnership meets one Saturday per month; please check the calendar for current meeting dates. For more information about this show or the Partnership, please contact the Library Director at jjones@sailsinc.org or call 508.758.4171.
