About Us

The Merrimack Valley Artisans is a growing and supportive group of local artists and crafts people. All of the members have demonstrated a serious commitment to their particular art and to the promotion of art in our area. Our monthly meetings take place in Dunstable, MA and our annual October Show is located in Chelmsford, MA.

Our mission includes peer support and advancement of each of our careers in the artistic and business sense. Our meetings include; discussion topics, presentations and/or speakers. We support local student artists with scholarships to assist in their continued art education. Members also hold presentations in local schools and in the community to educate the public about the arts.

We invite new member applications and accept new members after completion of a jury review. We are looking for artists and craftspeople producing high quality, original work with attention to detail and workmanship – work that is expressive of the artist’s point of view and personal style. The work should be completely created by the artist from raw materials. We do not accept resale items or work made from kits, commercial molds, or consumable goods.
