POSTPONED - FOUR by FOUR for Education


Image by Colleen Sgroi

Unfortunately, the Four by Four for Education Event scheduled for this Saturday, March 14 has been postponed in support of Governor Charlie Baker declaring a state of Emergency in Massachusetts due to the spread of COVID – 19. Because the event brings a large group of people into our gallery, the Board of Directors has decided to be proactive in the effort to prevent the opportunity for the virus to spread. Another date will be announced as soon as possible.

RAFFLE EVENT POSTPONED
Exhibit: Mar 4 to March 14, 2020


Who Benefits: The Four by Four raises funds for the Brush Scholarship fund and Special Perspectives. A $1000 scholarship is granted to a deserving UMass Lowell art student. Special Perspectives programming brings art instruction to challenged adults, currently Megan's House, a transition program for young women recovering from addiction.

We ask visual artists to create one 4 inch by 4 inch work of art. The Brush provides a blank, stretched canvas. Artists create whatever they wish with whatever media and materials they like.

The Raffle Event: Guests buy $25 tickets and leave with a work of art. Names are drawn at random and your place in line is determined by the drawing.Tickets are sold at the door. No tickets will be sold in advance.
