Unique Show at Norfolk Library

There is still time to see a unique art show at the Norfolk Library -- until Nov. 30. The show features beautiful quilts inspired by paintings submitted to quilters last January. Some of the quilters "interpreted" the paintings somewhat abstractly, while others reproduced the painting faithfully, but better. It's hard to describe. But if you get the opportunity to swing by an run in, you really should do it. Trust me.

Boyden Library Art Auction

The Boyden Library has been very generous to the Foxboro Art Association over the years. Next March is our chance to give back. There is art auction being planned to be held at the Foxboro Country Club and we are asking for your art donations to make it a success. More details to follow, but it should be a wonderful event and a great opportunity to gain exposure for all artists.
