Reading Art Association was founded in 1958 to foster the arts in Reading Massachusetts. Over the years the Association has supported the community at large by giving to the Reading Scholarship Fund, giving art books to the Reading Public Library, and providing season passes to the Boston Museum of Fine Arts for members and non-members to use.
The Reading Art Association meets in the First Congregational Church of Reading on the second Wednesday of each month from September through June. See our current schedule for the details of the meetings. The church is located at 25 Woburn Street, Reading Massachusetts. Our meetings consist of demonstrations of painting technique as well as discussions of topics such as art preservation and marketing of artwork. The demonstrations and discussions are given by professional artists.
The demonstrations are held at 7:30 p.m. in Guild Hall of the First Congregational Church of Reading. The demos normally run until about 9:30 or 10:00. The door nearest Guild hall is the middle side door on Sanborn Street in Reading. To find us, follow these directions and maps to the church.
We normally request a $3.00 donation for non-members when they attend the demonstrations to help us cover our costs.
Board meetings are held at 6:30 p.m. prior to the demonstrations. All members are welcome to come to the board meetings, although voting privileges on board issues is restricted to members of the board.
Reading Art Association mounts a Spring show and a Fall show each season.
