Foxboro Art Assn Fall Show

For the first two weekends in October, the Gallery exhibited the annual Fall Members Show of the Foxboro Art Association. 111 pieces of terrific art by 56 members of the Art Association were displayed in 4 different media and ribbons were awarded in each category by guest judge Carole Berren.  The "Best in Show" ribbon was awarded to  Donna MacLure or her watercolor titled "Tangled", as pictured below.
Before the ribbons were awarded, however -- during the first weekend -- the public was invited to vote for their favorite piece (the "People's Choice" award). And, in all, 194 votes were cast by members of the public. The decisive choice was artist Laura Zanghetti for her painting titled "Shoe Shopping" (pictured below). The second weekend was capped with a Saturday afternoon reception as crowds of art lovers streamed through the gallery. At the end of the second weekend, the show comes down to be replaced by the returning anchor artists plus two guest artists for the 3d weekend in October, Pat Buckley and Marjorie Sardella. If you are in the neighborhood stop by and treat yourself to beautiful art work.

Paintout Sep. 29

We are having another Paint Out outside our gallery at Patriot Place – maybe our last one until the Spring. If you missed our last Paint Out, you won't want to miss this one. Mark your calendar for Saturday September 29th 1pm to 5pm (rain date is Saturday October 6th same time). What is a Paint Out? A group of artists coming together to paint outdoors. It is free for both the artists and the spectators. At our last two Paint Outs (March & June) we had approximately 30 artists and hundreds of spectators.  If you bring an easel you may want to bring an empty gallon jug too, which you can fill with water at the gallery, to weigh down your easel in case it gets windy. Our art gallery is located two doors down from Dunkin Donuts near Davio’s, Bar Louie’s, Skipjack’s, and Tastings.  Spread the word and tell your friends about this fun event. And if it rains, we will do it the following Saturday.

Featured Artists

This past weekend (July 20-22) the gallery hosted 3 featured artists: Deborah Putnam, pictured above, Steve Albee, an abstract expressionist, and Jaclyn Quigley, pictured below Deborah. Deborah Putnam hails from South Boston and is especially known for her marvelous cityscapes. While she was at the gallery this weekend, she painted her view of Skipjack's restaurant just outside the gallery (click on the above photo to enlarge it). Steve Albee also painted while he was at the gallery, and if you think his abstracts are easy. you should try to do one. Jacyln Quigley, a young emerging artist from Walpole, was perhaps the most productive, creating several colorful works using acrylic paint. Next weekend (July 27-28) our featured artist will be Ana Zanor, known for her amazing pet portraits, and Brenda Doucette, an award-winning nature photographer, known especially for her gorgeous depictions of flowers.
The gallery looks different every weekend, thanks to our changing featured artists. Visitors are always welcome. You don't have to ba an artist to appreciate beautiful images. And if you wish to be a featured artist for a future weekend, you should contact Frank Quinn at

Irish Paintout Successful

Massive crowds streamed through the Gallery during the Irish Festival held at Patriot Place on Saturday, St. Patrick's Day. More than a dozen artists painted inside and outside, helping entertain the crowds as foot-stomping Irish music played in the background. A major attraction was Steve Gaul, a popular guest artist at the Gallery, and 3 of his colleagues from SNAC: Southern New England Artist Community. They are Corey Ritch,Charlie Robinson and Scott Francoeur. All four set up shop accross from the gallery and proceeded to sculpt and paint larger-than-life creations -- perfect for drawing a crowd. (Unfortunately we have no pictures of them.) Other artists included Sarah Feragen, Rosemarie Doherty, Mari Connors, Ellen Little, Pat Buckley, Adam Czachorowski, Ralph Calderwood, George Ransom, Vania Noverca Viveiros, Haydi Hurley and Frank Quinn. Photographers Steve Cross, Jerry Crawford and Jack Gannon also participated. It was cooler than expected, but a fun day nevertheless.
