Art supply drive

For the month of May the Art Gallery at Patriot Place will be collecting art supplies for Horizons for Homeless Children. Feel free to bring new art supplies to the gallery and we will be delighted to get your donation to this worthy charity.

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.

Moving in!



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!

More photos of the interior

Here are more shots of the gallery interior. That spot in the back right of this photo is for a featured artist. Isn't it great?

We're all brainstorming about layout and such in this photo.

The lighting in the gallery is wonderful, too. We'll be able to spotlight paintings beautifully. A dream location.
Three out of five of us looking up something pertinent on our smart phones.

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.

Anchort Artist :: Polo Barrera

Polo Barrera has a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree and is an award-winning graphic designer. His paintings have been recognized for their inspired interpretations of nature. Polo resides in Walpole, MA and is a member of the Foxboro Art Association and the Neponset Valley Artists.
His work can be seen at Gallery 9 in Norwood and 13 Forest Gallery in Arlington. He also had a one-man show at the Mass Audubon, Moose Hill Wildlife Santuary titled “Strokes of Nature” (interview and work can be seen on YouTube).
For more on Polo Barrera, please visit his blog polodidit.blogspot.com.

Anchor Artist :: Jack Gannon

Jack’s love to explore and his unique vision on life are the makings of a great photographer. He is a “street photographer” with an eye for the beautiful and the unusual. His work, exhibited at numerous festivals & galleries, hangs in homes and offices all around the world.

Jack has transformed many of his photographs into works of art and has been approached by many fine artists wondering how what he does can be classified as photography, as it looks so much like a traditional work of art. To mix photography with traditional art is an art in itself.
Jack travels the globe photographing the people, the culture and the beauty within each big city & small village he explores and many times he finds himself in areas where tourists are rarely seen.
“I just love showing people the beauty that exists within the world today!”
A sample of Jack’s photographic art can be seen on his website.

Anchor Artist :: Francis X. Quinn

Frank began painting 25 years ago, when his wife JoAnn gave him a painting set for Christmas. Since then he has studied under three outstanding teachers: Barbara McAuliffe, Susan Kelley and Kim Morin Weineck. He paints exclusively in oils and prefers painting portraits and cityscapes.
Although a resident of Walpole, he has long been active in the Foxboro Art Association and for the past year and a half has worked with BJ Bjork to help produce the Foxboro Cable Access television show “Let’s Paint the Town with BJ Bjork.” He is a signature member of the Neponset Valley Artists.

Anchor Artist :: Ann Gorbett


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.

Permanent Artist :: Kim Morin Weineck April 2011-June 2011

A wife, mother, artist and teacher, Kim is always busy finding time to create paintings in her combination studio/children’s playroom. She enjoys working in all mediums, but favors oils and pastels -- switching back and forth between the two when the subject dictates.
