All new art supplies are welcome, but especially child-friendly items like washable markers, paper, watercolors, etc.
We're looking forward to bringing a large box of fun to these children in need. We hope you can help us out.

Last night four of the permanent artists were able to get in to the gallery and start the process of hanging artwork.
The gallery is divided by artist so a wide array of work is to be featured.
Can't wait to get in and see what it looks like when everything is on the walls!
Hope you can join us there!

The lighting in the gallery is wonderful, too. We'll be able to spotlight paintings beautifully. A dream location.
And right now it's bare - but it'll be filling up this week. What fun to see "before and after" photographs of the space.

Ann Gorbett paints exclusively with a palette knife to create her oil paintings because she loves the thick, painterly strokes of color she can create with it. Her work ranges in subject matter from city scenes to florals to figurative paintings based on nostalgic family photographs.
Ann is a Walpole resident, a member of the Foxboro Art Association, the Neponset Valley Artists, and the Arts Foundation of Cape Cod. She holds a fine art degree from Miami University of Ohio and has worked as a professional graphic designer in Boston for many years.
She began painting in oil again after taking a palette knife workshop through the Copley Society of Art and was immediately hooked. Her work is currently represented by Custom Art Framing & Gallery 9 in Norwood as well as 13 Forest Gallery in Arlington. One of her paintings, Afternoon In The City, was selected by Dick Blick Art Materials to appear on the painting knives page of their 2010 Studio Catalog.
You can view portfolios of her work as well keep up to date with her most recent paintings by checking her blog at anngorbett.blogspot.com.
