Fall Coffeehouse Concert Provides Great Music

Memorial Hall not available for this year's 36th Annual Holiday Craft fair
We have received word that the safety changes required for Memorial Hall will not be completed in time for the hall to be used for this year's Fair. As a result, this year's fair will be similar to last year's fair, with crafters located in the Methodist Church, the Universalist Church, Columbia Hall and the House of Art. Hoping to see all of you at this year's fair. Any questions or concerns please call Richard Guertin at 413-364-9413.

Monson Arts Council Art Camp a Huge Success
The Monson Arts Council's Summer Arts program, offered through Monson Parks and Recreation, ran from July 21-August 1, and was deemed a huge success by all involved. For the first year since the annual event began the camp made money, as it has become increasingly well known and eagerly anticipated. Click here for a complete review and photo gallery.

Monson Arts Council Gives Two Scholarship Awards
The Monson Arts Council is proud to announce the award of its sixth annual scholarship, and a second award to a very deserving runner up. The two top candidates were so strong that the scholarship committee was driven to create a second award for this year. For more information and photos, click here.

Spring Concert Brings Down the House
The Monson Arts Council Spring Concert, held at the Unitarian Universalist Church in Monson on May 3rd and featuring Nashville recording artist Bonnie Panda, was a big hit with the audience.
