Grafton – Over the weekend of Nov. 9-11, visitors to the Small Stones Festival of the Arts were treated to a free exhibit of art and photography accompanied by entertainment provided by musicians from the Apple Tree Arts music program. The festival, which featured 144 works of art, was a collaboration of ATA, Worcester County Camera Club and Blackstone Valley Art Association.

The festival was held at the beautiful Great Hall, One Grafton Common in Grafton.

Its mission, the organizers said, was “to elevate the practice and appreciation of fine art and photography in Central Massachusetts and to provide artists with a venue to showcase their work.”
