Has anyone pushed your buttons lately? Activism is in the air and regional artists have responded by creating 50 wearable and collectable ‘hot buttons’ designs for the upcoming Hot Buttons! exhibit at the Loading Dock Gallery. 
Merriam Webster defines ‘hot button’ as an emotional and usually controversial issue that triggers an immediate intense reaction. The ‘hot button’ designs in this show encompass a range from the political, social, and environmental, to other topics sure to pique public interest.
Hot Buttons! runs from August 2-27, but the main event takes place on Thursday, August 3, 2017 from 6:00-8:00 pm. The public will see the display of 50 collectable pinback buttons and may purchase one or more bags of 6 randomly selected buttons for $5. To get the buttons you want to collect, you must trade, cajole, buy, or beg someone who has the pinback button you want. It will be a very lively, fun, and socially interactive event.
The Loading Dock Gallery, a part of Loading Dock Arts, Inc., a 501c3, is open Wednesday through Saturday from Noon to 5:30 PM, and Sunday from Noon to 4 PM. For more information, call 978-656-1687 or visit
