The Greater Haverhill Arts Association is an all-volunteer, nonprofit organization founded in 1971 with a mission of supporting and promoting local artists, providing exhibit opportunities for their artwork, offering workshops and demonstrations of art techniques to further their development as artists, and promoting a broader appreciation for art in the local community. GHAA offers a monthly newsletter, a twice-monthly art workshop open to non-members, 6-8 art exhibits a year including an open exhibit and a student exhibit (both juried with awards), four art demonstrations with esteemed artists, an annual directory of resources and opportunities for artists, and the Art Festival on Bradford Common in September.The GHAA website ( provides a wide range of content that includes news, upcoming events, online art demonstrations, numerous podcast interviews with members, and member biographies with website links. We gather each January for Sunday paint-ins at Nunan’s Greenhouse in Georgetown, and we host an informative winter field trip to an art-related business. We also stage solo art shows every two months in the Art Niche at iHub at Harbor Place in Haverhill, and we administer the annual Robert Gablosky Scholarship for graduating seniors pursuing careers in art. For over fifty years, GHAA has provided artists and art enthusiasts of all ages, backgrounds, and levels with a strong sense of community as well as opportunities to share their art with each other and the public.

The following is a sampling from the display on exhibit at the library. Please stop in during the NTL’s open hours to see these and the rest of this collection from GHAA.
