Neponset Valley Artists

The gallery at Patriot Place is pleased to host the Neponset Valley Artists (NVA) as its "Guest Artists" during the last 2 weekends in August. The NVA is a group of dedicated artists who paint together in Walpole on a weekly basis under the tutelage of Kim Morin Weineck. Most of the group is pictured above, with 3 missing. The NVA artists on display at the gallery are Polo Barrera, Tony Donovan, Ann Gorbett, Haydi Hurley, Kathy Hutchinson, Cindy Kerr, Joseph Mahoney, Dianne Quigley, Frank Quinn, Diane Scotti, Kim Weineck, Steve Weinstock and Joanne Willoughby. 
Because of the Country Music Festival scheduled at Gillette Stadium on Saturday, Aug. 24, the gallery will only be open that Saturday from 10 to 1. But it will be open early on Friday at 1pm and stay open until 8pm. And on Sunday it will resume its regular schedule, 12 noon to 6pm. The NVA will also exhibit on the following weekend, Labor Day Weekend. So feel free to stop by the gallery when you can and enjoy the wonderful work of all these local artists.

Deb Putnam & J.T. Harding Aug. 2-4

The weekend of August 2-4 features the oil paintings of guest artists Deb Putnam and J.T. Harding. Deb Putnam hails from South Boston and her vibrant paintings (above) often depict Boston street corner scenes as well as portraits. J.T. Harding lives in Walpole and his paintings run the artistic gamut of still lifes, landscapes, and portraits (below). He also paints wonderful dog and horse portraits. Drop by the gallery this weekend and view the works of both these artists -- and maybe even watch them paint. The Artist's Studio & Gallery at Patriot Place provides opportunities to these and other artists every weekend, so come on down, meet some of these artists and browse the work of 8 or 9 local artists every weekend. The Gallery is conveniently located at the North end of the mall, behind the cinema, and within a stone's throw (if your Tom Brady) of the stadium.
