October Materpiece Masquerade

The Artist's Studio & Gallery at Patriot Place wants to host a special exhibit in the Fall for 5 local art associations: Foxboro, Franklin, Canton, Taunton, and Norwood. The exhibit would be called "Masterpiece Masquerade" and the idea would be to copy a famous painting or photograph, but to add a twist, making it unique (or funny). The Foxboro Art Assn did this three years ago at the local library and one artist painted a pastel copy of Renoir's "Dance at Bougival" and put the Beatles in the crowd. Another artist painted a Van Gogh "self-portrait" and painted in a lapel pin which said "I Buy Art". Since it was so much fun, the Foxboro members want to do it again, but this time the Gallery at Patriot Place wants to open it up to other local art associations and exhibit it to a larger crowd at Patriot Place this Fall. It would be open to all media, including photography. We plan to hold it the first 2 weekends in October and think it should be judged by a jury comprising a member of each art association (who was not participating in the exhibit). The prize money would be $200 for 1st, $150 for 2nd and $100 for 3rd. Each member would submit only one piece for an entry fee of $10. Delivery is at the gallery at Patriot Place Monday Sep. 30, 2-7 pm. Any questions contact Frank Quinn at or 508 668-7031
