ACTON -- Habitat for Humanity North Central Massachusetts is partnering with Artists Corner & Gallery to help raise money for Habitat NCM's current build on a house in Acton. Artists Corner & Gallery represents more than 50 artists who specialize in many different genres, and their talent will be displayed for the public at this show from Sept. 22 to Oct. 12. The theme of this show is "Home."
The opening receptions for this event will be Saturday, Sept, 22 from 4-7 p.m. and on Sunday, Sept. 23 from 1-4 p.m. A portion of the proceeds from the opening weekend will be donated to help Habitat for Humanity North Central Massachusetts continue their build on a house on School Street in Acton.
This show will be held at Artists Corner & Gallery, 566 Massachusetts Ave. Admission is free, and refreshments will be provided at the opening receptions.
Through volunteer labor and donations of money and materials, Habitat NCM builds and rehabilitates simple, decent houses alongside our homeowner partner families.
In addition to a down-payment and monthly mortgage payments, homeowners invest hundreds of hours of their own labor into building their Habitat house and the houses of others.
