Our 2020 Art Exhibit

has been Cancelled

due to the Chicopee Library's closing

The Art Committee will be mailing all Awards to winners directly,

and will notify all participating Artists about when they can retrieve their artwork

after we are informed about when we will have access to the Library once again.

In the mean time, all art remains safely in the Library til further notice.

Thank You.
