Patriot Place will hold its annual Irish Festival on Saturday, March 16 and will feature free Irish music and entertainment for its patrons. (The above photo is from last year's festivities.) On that same day the Artists Studio & Gallery at Patriot Place will hold its Spring Paintout (1-4 pm) and is inviting all artists to participate. In the event of inclement weather, Patriot Place will provide sheltered venues. Also, the Gallery will be hosting the Foxboro Art Association's Spring Members' Show that weekend (and the following weekend as well). In other words, a "threefer" that Saturday: Free Irish entertainment, artists painting outside (weather permitting), and a free show at the Gallery of more than 100 works of art. And if you come to the Gallery, you can vote on your favorite work of art, with the winner receiving the "People's Choice" ribbon the following Saturday. So c'mon down, enjoy the festivities, meet some artists, and vote for your favorite art! It's all free.
